MEET OUR TEAM
Didem Gurdur Broo
I care about the future of the world and nature. I am a computer scientist who aims to make future cyber-physical systems interoperable and sustainable. I am a change maker, who wants to bring new perspectives on designing the future intelligent machines. I am an analytical thinker with a passion for design thinking, a researcher with a future perspective, an engineer who likes problems more than solutions, and a teacher who likes to play during lectures.
Natalia Calvo Barajas
Natalia is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University. With a background in mechatronics and robotics engineering, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science acquired through the MSCA ITN program, her research focuses on developing fair and transparent algorithms for intelligent robots and diverse autonomous systems. She follows a multidisciplinary approach encompassing deep learning, human-robot interaction, robot manipulation tasks, and conversational interfaces. In a world where robots can actively assist humans, she aims to contribute to shaping the future of autonomous technology, fostering a society where these systems operate with fairness, accountability, and ethics at their core.
I am fascinated by how the human mind processes interactions with advanced technologies, whether they be avatars in virtual environments, social robots at home, or autonomous vehicles in traffic. I am an engineering psychologist who is intent on facilitating the adoption of innovative and sustainable technologies to improve user performance and experience without losing sight of the big picture.
