Emotive Computing Lab

Overview

We an interdisciplinary research team of computer scientists, cognitive scientists, and psychologists who investigate the complex interplay between thoughts and feelings while people perform complex real-world tasks. We uses these insights to develop intelligent technologies that help people accomplish great things by coordinating what they think and feel along with what they know and do. 

Our research blends scientific and engineering goals by focusing on:
  • basic research on affect and attention during complex learning and problem solving
  • using computer vision, gaze tracking, natural language processing, psychophysiology, and machine learning for computational modeling of mental states
  • developing affect-aware and attentional-aware technologies to coordinate emotion and cognition
