About Me

I am a PhD student at the Brain Embodiment Lab of the University of Reading, a researcher at the Artificial Intelligence Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, and a research scientist at Modality.AI, Inc. My research focuses on the development of mechanisms to enable natural, adaptive, and open-ended human-agent interactions through an interdisciplinary approach that combines work in knowledge representation and reasoning, language grounding, reinforcement learning based action learning as well as multimodal prediction of human affective and mental states.

  • Language Grounding
  • Knowledge Representation
  • Multimodal Learning
  • Human-Agent Interaction
