I’m a PostDoctoral Researcher in Human-Robot Interaction at MIT Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Julie Shah's Interactive Robotics group at CSAIL. Previously, I was a PostDoc at the Science of Intelligence Centre and Verena Hafner's group at Humboldt University of Berlin. I received my PhD in Computer Science from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, supervised by Joakim Gustafson and Gabriel Skantze. During my PhD, I visited Eric Horvitz's group at Microsoft Research in Seattle mentored by Dan Bohus and Sean Andrist, Mohammad Soleymani‘s group at the Institute for Creative Technologies (University of Southern California) in Los Angeles, and David Schlangen's group at the University of Potsdam in Berlin where I also held a PostDoctoral position after my PhD.

My research explores how to develop explainable multimodal AI technologies for collaborative interactive robots in order to improve human-machine communication through natural language and non-verbal signals. I regularly publish in HCI venues, such as HRI, CHI, and ICMI, in addition to psychology and computer science journals. In addition, I have been involved in the organisation of ICMI 2024 and in editorial services as an AC for CHI 2025, ROMAN 2024, ACII 2024, and as an associate editor for RA-L and guest editor at THRI.
