Research interests

My research focuses on understanding how emotions can shape our behaviour and impact on social relationships. I am interested in exploring the mechanisms for regulating emotions and emotion dynamics in dyads.

My current work explores the influence emotions can have in human-robot symbiotic interactions, particularly regarding the development of social, humanoid robots.
