Lecturer in Computer Science

I am a robotics researcher and lecturer with a PhD in Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) and a passion for developing intelligent systems that integrate with human life. My expertise lies in advanced control systems design, machine/deep learning, and programming for various robotic platforms, including exoskeletons, autonomous continuum robots, and socially assistive robots.

Throughout my international career, I've held research positions in the UK, France, Singapore, and Canada, collaborating with top institutions like the University of Edinburgh, Nanyang Technological University, and CNRS. These experiences have given me a unique depth of knowledge in applying robotics concepts across healthcare, rehabilitation, and social interaction.

I am a dedicated educator, committed to sharing my knowledge with the next generation of robotics engineers. Currently, I'm a Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Sunderland, while actively working in socially assistive HRI and autonomous robotic systems.

Some interesting projects I've worked on:
