BiographyI am a doctoral candidate and a Marie Curie ITN Fellow in the field of Robotics at Computer-Human Interaction for Learning and Instruction Lab at EPFL where I currently work towards building Human-Robot Interaction technologies, leveraging AI, to help improve learning environments for kids. I did my Masters in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from KAIST, South Korea and my Bachelors in Electronics Engineering from School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (SEECS) NUST in Pakistan. During my Bachelors and Masters degrees, my research revolved around path planning algorithms for mobile robots and autonomous household robots for elderly, respectively.
As the Women in AI (WAI) Education Lead in Switzerland, I organize WAI educational activities in the country such as WaiCAMPs and am also a part of WAI’s Global Education Task Force. I am passionate about causes such as safe and unbiased AI, education for all, and discrimination free society.
