Dr. Chuang Yu (于 闯)

Postdoc Researcher on Trustworthy HRI with Cognitive AI at Prof. Angelo Cangelosi's Lab-Cognitive Robotics Lab (COROLAB) of University of Manchester on project UKRI TAS Node in Trust (funding).

Before I come UoM, I received my Ph.D. degree at ASR Group (Autonomous Systems and Robotics) of U2IS, ENSTA-Paris, IP-Paris (Institut Polytechnique de Paris) supervised by Prof. Adriana Tapus. My past works in Paris are motsly about multimodal human behaviors understanding and robot behaviors synthesis with deep learning.
