Dear all

better late than never...

Short self-description:

I am a Computational Linguist and I have been working in the field of
speech synthesis, mainly on prosody modelling in
Concept-to-Speech-systems, to a small degree also on emotional speech
synthesis. I also have been concerned with embodied conversational agents
(ECAs). In this context I am mainly interested in the relationship of
speech and accompanying conversational gestures and in the development of 
XML-representation languages for specifying ECA behaviors.

Being a member of the HUMAINE Network of Excellence I have been working
with Marc and Miriam on the specification of the first version of
HUMAINE's Emotion Annotation and Representation Language (EARL).
Currently I am working on the multimodal analysis (i.e. on feature
extraction from videos and speech) of a corpus of acted emotions.

looking forward exiting  discussions ;-)
