ABOUT ME

I'll start as an Assistant Professor at the School of Computer Science, University of Guelph, in July 2024. Actively seeking motivated grad students interested in wearables and human-robot interaction. 

I explore and develop intelligent, efficient, and fun wearable and robotic systems that can sustain and improve user efficacy as they integrate into everyday life.
I love robots, cats, cocktails, latte art, and baking Chiffon cakes.
