About

Aziz is a a Postdoctoral researcher in the S4HRI unit. His research focuses on how we perceive and interact with social agents such as robots, machines and AI. His work examines the cognitive and neural underpinnings of the mental processes underlying these interactions to better understand the consequences of interacting with these agents. This multi-dimensional approach makes use of several techniques including live interactions with nonhuman social agents, physiological methods and behavioral paradigms.
