Ting Han (韩婷)
I’m a PhD student at Bielefeld University in the Dialogue Systems Group headed by Prof. David Schlangen. I’m also a member of the Cognitive Interaction Technology Center of Excellence (CITEC) graduate school. Previously I earned a M.S. in computer vision and B.S. in computer science, both from Lanzhou University in China.
I’m interested in enabling AIs to understand natural human communications. My current research focuses on exploring how natural language informs the interpretation of co-verbal gestures.
