Personal profile

Research interests

My current research interest is the multiparty interaction between several Embodied Conversational Coaches and older adults in a lifestyle coaching setting. I wonder what the possible advantages and disadvantages of a multiple coaches approach as compared to a single coach approach are. This involves questions about many subjects such as, for example, realism of the interactions in the group, group pressure, group dynamics, trust, roles of the coaches, and presentation of differing perspectives and opinions.


I have worked on helping to organise the course Conversational Agents, and will be guiding students that help us work on the Council of Coaches project.
