The Research Fellow will be involved in interdisciplinary research projects with collaborators from a diverse range of other academic subjects (e.g., Computing Science, Linguistics, Philosophy); much of this interdisciplinary research will focus on human-AI interaction. The Research Fellow will also be involved in pursuing projects that have potential for societal impact (e.g., intergenerational communication).
