Project title: 
Modeling Disfluencies in Incremental Spoken Dialogue Systems
Disfluencies such as repetitions, hesitations, reformulations, false starts and filled pauses are not only pervasive in human conversational speech but also facilitate understanding in a variety of ways. My research objectives center around the generation of disfluencies in incremental Spoken Dialogue Systems with a view to rendering SDSs clearer, more natural and better able to react to changes in the environment and interruptions.
