I am a researcher at the Interaction Lab here at the University of Skövde. My primary research focus lies on cognitive modelling for human-robot interaction, which I approach with a strong stance in embodied and situated views on cognition.
I’m currently engaged in three research projects. I'm leading the OKAVIM project funded by AFA, where we investigate the role of memory retreval (testing effect) in virtual learning environments. I am also engaged as sub-project leader of the research synergy Virtual Ergonomics, funded by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation (KK), and as a WP-leader of the research project EWASS, funded by Vinneova. In all projects, we are investigating various aspects of human behavior and cognition in virtual environments, with specific emphasis on eye-gaze as predictor for human action. We are working in both collaborative settings with robots and in virtual (VR/AR) environments.

I also have a big heart for robot learning from demonstration and wrote my PhD thesis on the topic, titled Cognition Rehearsed – Recognition and Reproduction of Demonstrated Behavior, presented January 2012. The thesis presents novel techniques for learning from human demonstration, inspired by several cognitive and neurocomputational models of learning.
