Sch: Computer Science & Eng

Dr Wafa Johal is Lecturer at the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of New South Wales. Previously, Wafa was a researcher at the CHILI Lab and Mobots Group at EPFL. She holds a PhD in Computer Sciences from the University of Grenoble Alps. Her research aims at creating acceptable and useful assistive robot interactions using social signal sensing, affective and cognitive reasoning and natural expressivity. Her latest work has investigated the use of tangible robots in education and rehabiliation.
