Group Leader

Dr. Marwa Mahmoud

Dr Marwa Mahmoud is a Lecturer in Socially Intelligent Technologies in the School of Computing Science at University of Glasgow, and a Visiting Fellow in the Department of Computer Science and Technology at University of Cambridge, UK. She had her PhD in Computer Science from University of Cambridge, UK in 2015. Her research interests focus on computer vision for social signal processing and multimodal signal processing, especially within the context of affective computing, behaviour analytics, human behaviour understanding and animal behaviour understanding. She applied her research in the areas of automotive applications, mental healthcare, and animal welfare.

Doctoral Student

Zejian Feng

Zejian Feng is a Ph.D. student in the Behavioural-AI Lab. He received his Master's degree in Data Science at the University of Glasgow in 2022. his doctoral research topic explores how to devise AI assistive tools for mental well-being applications. He is also interested in building models for pain estiamtion in sheep by measuring their facial expressions.

Doctoral Student

Monica Duta

Monica Duta is a PhD student with the Centre for Doctoral Training in Socially Intelligent Artificial Agents at the University of Glasgow, where she works on a project supervised by Prof. Rachael Jack and Dr Marwa Mahmoud. Her research interests concern multimodal facial expression signal processing, specifically the perception of hand-over-face gestures (combination of face and hand gestures). She has previously worked in projects involving the use of prediction in emotion recognition and data-driven models of facial expressions of valued facial expressions in different cultures. Monica has previously graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Psychology (First Class) from the University of Aberdeen. She has also completed her M.Sc. in Research Methods in Psychological Science (Distinction) from the University of Glasgow.

M.Sci. Student

Veronika Shabun

Veronika is a 5th year MSci student in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. Her research interests lie in using machine learning methods for mental health applications. She is engaged in university life as a class representative and a mentor for fresher students.

M.Sc. Research Student

Hongyun Seng

Hongyun Sheng is a Master's by Research student in the Behavioural-AI Lab, University of Glasgow. He's got his Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from University of Shanghai for Science and Technology in 2022.
