Other research

My personal research interests lie in the field of Human-Robot interaction and perceptive capabilities of robots by utilizing a number of sensors. I am investigating various methods to enhance human-robot interaction and social exhibition through interactive tasks, games and communication. Additionally, I utilise a number of sensors to perceive the environment and emotional state of the user to generate appropriate feedback towards them.
