Research Interests

My research interests include affective computing, human-robot interaction, human-centred AI, multimodal emotion recognition, multimodal behavioural analytics, digital health, and dialogue systems. My research focuses on adopting interdisciplinary knowledge to develop interactive systems that incorporate social-emotional intelligence, in particular, social robots. I also work on human-centred AI in the healthcare context.
