Welcome to my research page! My research focuses on improving the perceptual, learning, cognitive and physical capabilities of robotic systems so that they can assist people in a personalised way. I direct several ongoing research projects at the Personal Robotics Laboratory, as detailed below (this new section is under construction during late April - early May 2021) 

Multimodal interaction with a humanoid robot

Personal Assistive Robotics

For the last 15 years I have been engaged in research towards assistive robots that   personalise their assistance towards the individual needs and characteristics of their human users This research has received substantial recognition and support by the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng), which in 2019 awarded me the RAEng Chair in Emerging Technologies (2019-2029)
