  About me

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in Human Robotics Group, at the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London, U.K.
Through my current position in HRG, I have been working on the
- the development of computational models to predict human impedance regulation for adaptive visuo-haptic sensing in human-robot collaboration.
- the design of adaptive controllers that could improve sensory prediction through impedance adaptation for soft interactive agents.
- the creation of techniques for human sensory augmentation based on the established robotic perception with multi-sensory feedback.

Research interest

Human-robot interaction control
Visuo-haptic exploration and sensing
Sensory augmentation
