Christine Laetitia Lisetti
Director: Affective Social Computing Laboratory
School of Computing and Information Sciences
Florida International University
I am a faculty at Florida International University in the School of Computing and Information Sciences.
I conduct research in Affective Computing, a new field of computer science that I helped establish, and which lies at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in Computer Science, of emotion and personality theories in Psychology, and of social interaction in Communication.
I am on the founding Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing, and you can find my current Curriculum Vitæ here. My long-term research goal is to create digital and engaging socially intelligent agents that can interact naturally with humans via expressive multi-modalities in a variety of contexts involving socio-emotional content (e.g. health coach, social companion, serious/educational game).
I won the National Institute of Health Individual Research Award, the AAAI Nils Nilsson Award for integrating Technology, and the AAAI Technical Innovation Award from the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (with Prof. R. Murphy). I have published numerous research articles, and I have been key note speaker at international conferences, including the Affective Computing and Intelligent Interactions International Conference. I has received research grants from federal agencies both in Europe and in the USA, such as the European Commission (EC), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institute of Health (NIH), NASA Ames, US Army STRICOM, the Office of Naval Research (ONR); as well as from industry such as Intel, Microsoft, STMicroelectronics. I also regularly serve as a research expert for the National Science Foundation (USA), for the “Agence Nationale de la Recherche” (FRANCE), for the “Fonds de Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies” (CANADA), and for the European Commission (BELGIUM).
