So after completing my PhD and a Post-Doc at Plymouth, I have decided to move onto new and exciting challenges, and I’ve opted to make a move to industry. From the 24th November I will join Engineered Arts Ltd in Cornwall where I will be working to develop the social aspects of their robots RobotThespian and SociBot.
I’ve very much enjoyed my time here in Plymouth, and I have been very fortunate and am very proud to have worked with and learned from world-class scientists. But after 6 years here, I feel that it is time to move on.
Though this is not the end of my links to academia. Engineered Arts frequent the main Human-Robot Interaction conferences to show their robots, and so I hope to attend these conferences as part of the company and catch up with the friends and network in the HRI community. So, hope to catch you guys in HRI’15 in Portland!
