If you had asked me after my graduation what my goals were for the future, I would have told
you that I wanted to get a BSc degree in Mathematics,

form the basis for good life quality and
be happy with my life. I have never taken big steps forward, I have never been too self
-
confident or goal
-
oriented. While some of my fellow students talked about MSc and PhD
degrees already in the first year, I did

not dear to think about postgraduate studies before the
end of the fourth year. Nevertheless, I had indomitable will, a reasonable amount of
stubbornness and a lot of energy. All of this guided me step by step to the world of science.


After I had finishe
d my BSc degree in Mathematics, I started working in the Laboratory of
Artificial Perception, Systems and Cybernetics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering. My
desire to acquire new knowledge and to use as well as to upgrade what I had already learnt
wa
s very strong. However, since I have never been satisfied with decisions offering only
limited choices, I decided to continue my studies at two faculties


at the Faculty of Electrical
Engineering and at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. Just in case
, one could say. In
2006 I finished a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and I started working as an Assistant
in Mathematics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Ljubljana.


My research work is related to the interdisciplinary field of speec
h technologies and is
focused on speech interfaces or spoken
-
language dialogue systems. The emphasis of my
work

lies on the human
-
computer dialogue management, on the knowledge representation in
information systems and on the performance evaluation of

spee
ch interfaces. Besides
research in electrical engineering, mathematics and computer science there are so many other
things that I like to do and so much more knowledge that I would like to acquire. I love sport,
I like to travel and learn foreign languages
, I am interested in astronomy, psychology,
medicine and history.


I cannot really say what the future will bring. I rarely plan ahead for more than one year.
