Hi, I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Glasgow (Singapore Campus). Earlier, I served as Associate Professor at the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (India), and Research Scientist at Advanced Digital Sciences Center, University of illinois at Urbana-Champaign's research center in Singapore. My research focuses on Human-centered computing, which involves design and implementation of interactive/user-centric AI applications. In particular, I am interested in designing and developing theoretical and empirical approaches for understanding human visual/emotional perception and human behavior, and modeling human signals (eye movements, EEG, facial movements) as a source of input/feedback in AI applications. My research in particular incorporates ideas from psychology and sociology, and focuses on the utilization of multimodal behavioral signals, and I have recently been identified as a Multimedia Rising Star (one out of 12 nominees worldwide- details here).
