I’m a postdoctoral researcher in the Social Brain in Action Laboratory within the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, University of Glasgow, Scotland. My research is advised by Professor Emily Cross and part of the Social Robots project in which we study how humans perceive and interact with robots. Specifically, I investigate social interactions between humans as well as with artificial agents using neuroimaging, virtual reality, brain stimulation and behavioural measures.
