Welcome on my website about my work and my passions, which are often the same.

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Human Media Interaction group at the University of Twente in Enschede (Netherlands). Currently I am working on multimodal virtual characters, and especially the technical aspects. This means perceiving the human user with sensors (such as a camera and microphone), interpreting his behaviour, and using these interpretations to generate behaviour (such as speech and gestures) for a virtual character. My focus lies on the complete system and the integration of all its components.
