Jessy Ceha

Ph.D. Student at David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, University of Waterloo, Canada




My research interests lie in cognitive neuroscience and human-computer interaction. By increasing our understanding of cognition I would like to develop innovative, intuitive interfaces. I am particularly interested in brain-computer interfaces and human-robot interaction. The focus of my Ph.D. will be on curiosity and its application to robotics.
