Research interests

I am a post-doctoral researcher at Social Brian in Action (SOBA) Lab (https://www.soba-lab.com/), working for Social Robots project (https://www.so-bots.com/), funded to Professor Emily Cross by European Research Council. I specifically contribute to a cross-cultural investigation on human-robot interaction (HRI), focusing on how UK and Japanese people perceive interpersonal space (also known as proxemics) during HRI. Previously, I was at Adverse Childhood Experiences Lab at the University's Institute of Health and Wellbeing(IHW), led by Prof. Helen Minnis, to work for an EPSRC-funded project, School Attachment Monitor, to develop a prototype for assessing school-aged children's attachment representations. During the period, I also led a research project, funded by EPSRC's NewMind network, to explore the feasibility of developing a tangible toy for childhood anxiety. I started as a developmental psychologist with an interest in young children's comprehension of sarcasm and irony in relation to their developing social cognition. I have since developed a wide range of research interests around the intersection of mental health, human development and technology. Current collaboration in parallel progression to the above research activities includes: family relationships and cultural processes between UK and Japan (with Prof. Yasuko Hososaka at Jikei University, Prof. Kimiko Kayashima, Shumei University in Japan, and Prof. Mitsutoshi Horii, Chaucer College, UK); understanding a severe and enduring form of social withdrawal known as hikikomori as a socio-emotional mental health phenomenon (with Prof. Hamish McLeod at IHW, and Dr. Tadaaki Furuhashi, Nagoya University, Japan); exploring a role of participatory art activities for oxytocin secretion in children with Autism (with Dr. Chiharu Tsuji and her team, Kanazawa University, Japan and Aya Iguchi-Sherry, Artlink Central, Scotland).
