Chunag Yu is currently a Research Fellow at the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC) at University College London. His primary research interests lie in the areas of Affective AI and the development of chatbots with Large Language Models. His work emphasizes the creation of human-centered AI systems that seamlessly integrate into our daily lives, enhancing overall user experience and interaction.

Previously, He held the position of Research Associate at the Cognitive Robotics Lab of the University of Manchester, where he works on Cognitive Robotics with Theory of Mind and Reinforcement Learning. This research was supported by the UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems-Node in Trust. In addition, He served as a Co-Investigator on a project concerning human-in-the-loop assistive robotics, funded by the UKRI TAS Integrated Project - Verifiably Human-Centric Robot-Assisted Dressing. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Autonomous Systems and Robotics Lab at the Polytechnic Institute of Paris. During his doctoral studies, he concentrated on multimodal affective AI and the development of multimodal generative models for social robotics, further solidifying his expertise in the field of human-centered AI systems.
