My doctoral research focuses on Virtual reality based Physiologically-Informed Intelligent Adaptive Systems. Currently I work on developing technological solutions for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The other areas of interest includes Signal processing, Affective Computing and Human-Computer Interaction.
