Personal profile


My research investigates the perceptual-motor and social interactive processes that scaffold skill acquisition and decision-making in individuals and teams. Furthermore, my research involves developing novel technologies, such as social artificial agents, to expedite human skill learning, enhance performance, and promote social inclusion. My work entails monitoring the dynamics of multidimensional behavioural and physiological signals, developing computational models of human behaviour for human-machine interaction, and the utilizing networked, immersive virtual reality technologies to evaluate the effectiveness of artificial agents on social collaboration as well as their social acceptance.

I received my PhD in Psychology from the University of Cincinnati, where I was a member of the Center for Cognition, Action and Perception.
