Prof Farshid Amirabdollahian

I am a professor of Human-Robot Interaction in the School of 工程 and Computer Science. I received my PhD in 2004 from Reading University, Department of Cybernetics.

I lead the Assistive and Rehabilitation Robotics Laboratory, as well as the Kaspar project and University of Hertfordshire Robot House. My expertise is in the areas of robotics, ambient assisted living, safety and ethics, haptics, and assistive and rehabilitation robotics with specific focus on adaptive and personalised training.

I have undertaken research involving using technology for caring and assisting humans since 1999. I have been involved in FP5/6/7 projects such as GENTLE/S, i-Match, LIREC and ROBOSKIN.

I have successfully coordinated the ACCOMPANY (FP7 STREP) and SCRIPT (FP7 STREP) projects and been involved in CORBYS (FP7 IP), and Trustworthy Robotic Assistance (EPSRC). I'm a member of ISO Technical Committee 299, involved in standardisation activities of robot and robotic devices.
