About Paul Baxter

Paul Baxter is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computer Science, College of Science, a member of the Lincoln Centre for Autonomous Systems (L-CAS), and a member of the Autism Research and Innovation Centre (ARIC). His research interests are broadly in the cross-over between social human-robot interaction (with a particular emphasis on child-robot interaction and educational/health applications) and cognitive/developmental robotics (especially considering memory and cognitive architectures loosely inspired by human cognition). Please refer to his personal homepage for further details of research and activities:
