Research Interests

My research interests are related to the development of intuitive and efficient human-robot interfaces (HRI) which should enable robots and humans to co-work together in close proximity and improve their overall performance. My PhD project is focused on the analysis of multiple sources of information (e.g. human brain activity and eye movments) in order to infer the intention of the human and so allowing the robot to take appropriate actions without receiving any explicit commands.

Some of my other interests include neuromorphic robotics and namely biologically inspired models for sensorimotor control and learning. Additionally, I am also interested in applying machine learning techniques to problem associated with the field of robotics.
