Short Bio
Before starting this PhD, I gathered knowledge in psychology, electrical engineering, logic and computation, hardware engineering and robotics. Therefore, I plan on tackling my research topic “Joint Attention” from various angles. This includes doing user studies, prototype on robots and in simulations, and coming up with knowledge engineering and cognitive agent modeling ideas to let robots better understand dynamic social situations. When I feel productive in my spare time I like doing generative pen plotting, game jamming, ant farming and long distance biking.
