Olen Aparajita. I recently joined IHTE as a diploma thesis worker. I am working with Aino Ahtinen on Social Robotics, which is also the topic of my thesis. My thesis is concerned with studying the cultural factors that affect interaction with social robots. In addition to that, I am pursuing my Masters in Information Technology (Major: User experience, Minor: Pervasive Computing).
My hobbies are travelling and playing mobile games (Clash Royal to be specific). However, now-a-days, I am trying to learn about Finland and Finnish culture. I am very excited to start working with the cute robots, Nao and Pepper, and I hope to see you all.
Best regards, Aparajita
