Congratulations Eduardo Sandoval – PhD Graduate


We are proud of our latest PhD graduate: Eduardo Benitez Sandoval! His thesis “Reciprocity in human robot interaction” has been a true success and chapters of his thesis have been published at the International Journal on Social Robotics as well at the ACM/IEEE International Conference On Human Robot Interaction. His thesis is available for download from the UC library at


Eddie’s senior supervisor, Christoph Bartneck, adds “From the amazing cover design of his thesis you already get a flavour of Eduardo’s outstanding design skills. He has the aesthetic understand and passion of a true designer and he has become a scientist during his PhD project. I am proud of his accomplishments and his social nature will be thoroughly missed in the lab.

Eduardo is now leaving us to join the University of Bielefeld for a PostDoc position. I wish him all the best for his future and I can’t wait to see what he will teach the Nao robots to do next.”
