My main area of work is human-robot interaction and my main expertise relevant to ARQ is designing and executing human-robot interaction experiments, the subsequent data analysis. Due to past exposure to research in psychology and secondary studies in philosophy, I am acquainted with multiple research methods from different fields of research. This provides me with a vantage point where I am able to talk and understand researchers from both sides of the "sciences - humanities divide", and I was subsequently chosen to work on the drafting of interdisciplinary project proposals.
