I am a Ph.D. student focusing on physiological computing for socially and emotionally intelligent systems. The aim of my thesis is to construct an adaptive system for treating social and emotional disorders using virtual stimulation. I am applying several new non-intrusive, wireless, and wearable technologies for the automated analysis of physiological reactions and behavior.
