M. Jansen MSc (Michel)

About Me

Currently I am a PhD candidate within the Computer Science department working mainly in the fields of Social Signal Processing and Affective Computing. Both field involve capturing human-human or human-machine interactions with multiple sensors and inferring user status and social intentions using multimodal user data.

My PhD is focused on capturing important contextual cues in social human-human and human-machine interactions and inferring the user status and intentions. Currently this involves studying laughter in interactive settings, what kind of cues are important to human users for understanding the meaning of different types of laughter and what kind of (machine) learning models and data can achieve similar or better results.

Conferences I visit include ACII, ICMI, LREC and possibly INTERSPEECH. My website is updated once every few months and can be found here.
