Gustav is currently part of the Listening Talker (LISTA) EU-project, investigating techniques for improving dynamical process models such as Markov chains and HMMs, with applications to speech synthesis. His scientific interests encompass a variety of aspects of general machine learning, statistical models, and information theory, for applications both inside and outside of sound and image processing. Aside from dynamical processes and Markov models, example interests include nonparametric regression (the Gaussian process), matrix factorization techniques (NMF, GPCA), and ideas such as the information bottleneck.
