Dr. Eduardo B. Sandoval

I’m a social robotics researcher. My work spans different aspects of social robotics, such as Reciprocity in Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), robots and education, and robots and fiction, among other topics. Mainly, I’m interested in how people make decisions when they interact with robots and other interactive devices. Beyond traditional robotics, there is a growing interest in the idea of designing machines that are capable of meaningful social interactions with humans. In fact, my work incorporates insights from behavioural economics and social psychology in order to explore different approaches in social robotics. I can say as a result of working in social robotics I have a better understanding of the human condition.
