Research Interests

My research interest lies in several interdisciplinary areas between Physics and other sciences, e.g., Robotics/Artificial Intelligence, Sports Science, Agriculture, Medical science, etc. I have worked on several interdisciplinary topics such as: Studying trajectories of different classes of blind persons; Developing facial emotion recognition algorithms, etc.
