I have been awarded my PhD in human-robot interactions from King's College London in 2015.  My thesis focuses on identification of abstracted dynamics of haptic based human control policies and human responses in guiding/following using hard reins in low visibility conditions. The extracted haptic based guidance policies can be implemented on a robot to guide a human in low visibility conditions like indoor fire-fighting, disaster response, and search and rescue.

I have made significant contributions in modelling haptic-based guidance control policies in human-human interactions and human-robot interactions in low visibility conditions. My work was accepted for a finalist for the IEEE Franklin V. Taylor memorial award for the best paper and the best student paper award in the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics conference, Manchester, UK in 2013. Also my work was also selected for publication in the IEEE flagship robotics conference like IROS.

my work was also published in high impact factor journals such as IEEE Transaction on System, Man, and Cybernetics part B,PLOS ONE. Moreover, my work was featured in EPSRC news release and California based CBS Radio in a live interview.
