Pierre Lison Completes Doctoral Degree
On February 21, 2014, Pierre Lison successfully defended his PhD thesis on Structured Probabilistic Modelling for Dialogue Management. His review committee was comprised of Kristiina Jokinen (University of Helsinki), Verena Rieser (Heriot-Watt University), and Jim Tørresen (University of Oslo). This month, there are many reasons to congratulate Pierre: on the on-time completion of his doctoral project, on the acquisition of a three-year post-doctoral fellowship in the very competitive national ‘free project’ funding scheme, and on the imminent arrival of a new family member. Our heartfelt congratulations, Pierre! More impressions from the day of the defense are available on facebook.
