Biography:

I am a post-doc researcher in the Pattern Recognition & Bioinformatics Group in TU Delft. I am currently working in the Resourceful Ageing project, which explores data-driven and machine learning approaches to design next generation IoT for ageing population.

Prior to my position in TU Delft, I was a research fellow at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, in the Computer Vision and Active Perception Lab (CVAP), where I investigated natural human-robot interaction and social robotics.

I received my PhD degree from Lancaster University in 2015, where I was also a Marie Curie research fellow. While in Lancaster, I investigated novel video-based gaze estimation techniques, gaze-based interaction for large displays, and using eye tracking for detecting dementia and health monitoring. I obtained my Master’s degree from the University of Amsterdam in Artificial Intelligence, where I was awarded the Huygens Scholarship.

Research services:

I co-organised the 5th International Workshop on Pervasive Eye Tracking and Mobile Eye-Based Interaction (sponsored by 3 industry partners) with academics from ETH Zurich and Max-Planck Institute for Informatics in 2015. I served in the program committee for the 3rd and the 6th International Workshop on Pervasive Eye Tracking and Mobile Eye-Based Interaction. I was invited as a member of the technical program committee for the Technology & Applications track of FG 2017. Frequently,  I get invited to review submissions for international conferences (e.g., CHI, UIST, UbiComp, ICMI), Journals (e.g.,Sensors, PMC, IJHCS) and magazines.
