Research Description: My work addresses the problem of predicting the activity of people by combining models obtained from, e.g., eye tracking (or even wearable EEG sensors), with robotic perception. This allows us to obtain contextual information which is key for human-robot co-work applications. A particularly unique aspect of my work is the use of novel computational methods, e.g., based on topology, that allows us to abstract over the spatiotemporal processes associated with these sensors.
