Hi, I’m Sameer.
I’m interested in Humanoid Robots, Human-Robot Interaction, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Embodiment and Body-Ownership Illusions.
I’m currently the campus programme coordinator for the MSc. Robotics programme and senior lecturer at the Department of Computer Engineering and Informatics, Middlesex University Dubai. I also head the Immersive VRX Lab at the university. My main research interests deal with investigating the behavioural, attitudinal and implicit effects of having an illusion of body ownership over a virtual or robotic body that’s different from one’s own.
