I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Cluster of Excellence Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC), Bielefeld University and a Visiting Fellow at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Queensland University of Technology. In my research on Human-Robot Interaction, I take an interdisciplinary approach spanning Human-Computer Interaction, Social Psychology, Cognitive Science and Machine Learning.
My goal is to guide the design of robots that will be socially accepted and perceived as desirable rather than threatening. In order to achieve it, I collaborate with engineers, psychologists, interaction designers and philosophers. My work has been published in the flagship journals and conference proceedings in the field. My p-index  is 0.63, which indicates a high level of research independence of my work.
