multi-modal perception & interaction. We are seeking a highly motivated and
talented researcher to work on interactive robotic framework with diverse
sensory channels for emotional and social interaction.

The source of funding is National Institute of Health on our NRI (National
Robotics Initiative) project “Music-based Interactive Robotic Orchestration
for children with ASD.” It will be an exciting chance to develop
state-of-the-art robotic interaction framework at the heart of New York
City.
