After 4 years as an IT professional, Frédéric Delaunay obtained an M.Sc at the University Pierre&Marie Curie (Paris VI, France) in signal processing and robotic systems. Following his work at INRIA Bordeaux on developmental approaches to optimizing consensus dynamics in language games, he is now affiliated with the CRNS, Plymouth University, UK, where he is completing his PhD on Human-Robot Interaction under the supervision of Professor Tony Belpaeme. Delaunay designed, built and developed the LightHead robot to explore the social and emotional aspects of interactive tutelage scenarios, and to allow other academics to study human behaviour beyond the limitations of mechatronic heads. Interested in artificial intelligence and HRI, he is working on further developments of the LightHead.
