We are working with Prof Raphael Phan from MMU on a number of research initiatives that can bring the two groups closer together.
The current theme we are exploring includes work on pattern recognition from visual sensors, with the goal to identify subtle/concealed emotions. This has applications in some of our existing research such as research with children with autism, but also a larger reach in areas such as security (e.g. lie detection) or medical domain (e.g. concealment of emotion in depression).
