I am a Lecturer in Spoken Dialogue Systems at the Department of Engineering and a Fellow of Murray Edwards College.

My research lies in various aspects of spoken dialogue systems and in particular decision-making. I am greatly interested in machine learning algorithms and their application to human-computer dialogue with the aim of building systems that can learn how to conduct a dialogue directly from human interaction and are scalable to large domains.

Information engineering investigates the generation, distribution, analysis and use of information in engineering systems. Developing models and analytical methods for decision-making that can be implemented in intelligent systems is one of the strategic themes of the Engineering Department.
