I am interested in multimodal human-robot interaction and haptic communication between agents as part of user-centred robotics. My long-term research goal is to develop robotic systems for medical applications and solutions for robot-assisted motor learning in diverse fields that are designed with humans and for humans. To achieve this goal I focus on human users by considering and integrating factors from robotics, data science, neuroscience, psychology and clinical expertise. In my research, I follow an experimental approach that is data-driven in developing new technology and quantifying user ability.
