Shokoofeh Pourmehr PhD Graduate in Robotics

I am a recent computer science PhD graduate from Autonomy Lab at Simon Fraser University (SFU). My PhD research focused on designing multi-modal interfaces for natural Human-Robot Interaction. I've developed methods for humans to get a mobile robot's attention to engage in an interaction in simple and intuitive ways. My research interest includes human-robot interaction, robot behavior design, and their applications to domains where robots can work with and around people in their everyday life.
