Dr. Khiet Truong is an assistant professor in the Human Media Interaction group, University of Twente. After her PhD research at TNO, she obtained her PhD at the University of Twente. Her interests lie in the automatic analysis and understanding of verbal and nonverbal (vocal) behaviors in human-human and human-machine interaction, and the design of socially interactive technology to support human needs. Having a background in (computational) paralinguistics and speech analysis, her main focus is on analysing the vocal modality of expression, in addition to the visual (e.g. facial expressions, eye gaze) and physiological modalities in social interaction. She is currently serving as TPC member for several conferences such as ACII2017, ICASSP2017, ACM UMAP2017, ACM Multimedia2017 and is Area Chair for Interspeech 2017.
