  • Postdoctoral Research Associate
Indu P. Bodala is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Affective Intelligence and Robotics Lab (AFAR, PI: Dr Hatice Gunes), Department of Computer Science and Technology, University of Cambridge. She received her PhD from the NUS Graduate School of Integrative Sciences and Engineering at the National University of Singapore where she studied human attention and trust during human interactions with autonomous agents. Her research interests include human-robot interaction, affective computing, machine learning and cognitive neuroscience. She is currently working on longitudinal HRI studies where human users interact with robot wellbeing coach and using an iterative design approach, aims to develop autonomous robots that can deliver wellbeing interventions for long-term use.

Research
