Welcome! I am a postdoctoral researcher at Media Technology Center, ETH Zürich. I am leading the project on the development of the first voice assistant that can speak different Swiss German dialects by creating low-resourced neural machine translation and text-to-speech synthesis models (project video).
Previously, I was a joint doctoral student of Computer Science at Disney Research Studios and in Computer Graphics Laboratory at ETH Zürich, where I was advised by Markus Gross . I completed my masters studies at the Department of Electrical Engineering at EPFL, and spent time at EMPA, Disney Research Zürich, and Disney Research Pittsburgh as an intern, and University of British Columbia as a visitor.
My general research interests lie in image processing, video processing, natural language processing, speech synthesis, visual-textual data alignment, computer vision. More specifically, my research is mostly about exploring the correspondances between visual, textual and audio elements.
