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 mental states during complex learning and problem solving; 
  • computational modeling of mental states using computer vision, gaze tracking, speech and language processing, psychophysiology, and machine learning
  • developing intelligent technologies that sense and adapt to mental states
