Bio

I graduated in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Belgrade at the Faculty of Mathematics in 2006. Since then, I have been at the University of Cambridge, first, as an MPhil student studying Computer Speech Text and Internet Technology at the Computer Laboratory. Subsequently, I did a PhD in Statistical Dialogue Modelling under the supervision of Prof Steve Young at the Engineering Department. My research was funded by the EPSRC project Spoken Dialogue Management using Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes and I also worked in collaboration with the EC FP7 project Computational Learning in Adaptive Systems for Spoken Conversation. After I completed my PhD in 2011, I was awarded the EPSRC PhD plus award to stay as a Research Associate in the Dialogue Systems Group. I was a technical area leader for the Parlance project, an EU FP7 project. In October 2014, I was elected a Research Fellow of Murray Edwards College. In April 2016 I was appointed a Lecturer in Dialogue Systems.
