I have been awarded 20,000AUD by the Faculty of Engineering to start a new prject called GIRL “Gamified and Interactive Robot Learning”. I really look forward to starting to work on this.
Faculty of Engineering, School of Computer Science and Engineering, UNSW Sydney Start Date: Fall, 2021 Area of Research Human-Robot Interaction. Robots are foreseen to be used in a variety of home contexts and interacting with novice users, such as assisting the dependent elderly in daily housework (i.e., caring and unpacking groceries, fetching, and pouring a glass of water, etc). Enabling robots to adapt to their environment through learning context specific tasks would be necessary for them to be used adequately by non-programming users.
Our Early Career Academic Network Committee, Eng. ECAN, received the Faculty Award of Equity and Diversity from the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Prof. Stephen Foster.
I am delighted to be part of such a vibrant team, working together to make ECAs shine!
About a year after landing foot in Australia, I have been awarded with a Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) by the Asutralian Research Council (acceptance 16%).
The project I proposed is inline with my vision to build co-learning system in which robots can teach novices some skills (see CoWriter Project) but also learn from human trainers. To find out more about the project see the page: HURL.
Super excited about the new SydCHI local chapter. Stay tune!
Our international team received the best demo award at @HRI2020 @dillenbo @AnaraSandy! #SNSF #CoKaz http://humanrobotinteraction.org/2020/best-paper-awards/
I am hounoured that the 27th International Conference on Computers in Education awarded me with the Best Reviewer Award.
I was very glad to meet my colleagues and friends at RoMan. We presented four papers and enjoyed a day off in Jaipur.
I was very glad to meet my colleagues and friends virtually at RoMan2020.
