Research interests

My research focuses on human-robot interaction, with the objective of getting robots to adapt to humans’ interaction. An adaptive robot will have many applications, for example a therapy machine which can tune to each individual’s therapy needs, in terms of assisting and resisting forces, can be a very useful tool in the gym.

My research interests divide into: rehabilitation, assistive and assessment robotics; human performance assessment using engaging interactions; robots for enhancing personal interaction; artificial intelligence; and safe human computer interaction. I have keen interest in statistics and mathematics.

I am also interested in Robot Safety and Ethics. I am working as a member of ISO TC299, working on standad development around robots and robotic devices. 

Teaching specialisms

I teach Robotics and Artificial Intelligence to first, second and third year BSc students.
