Areas of interestArtificial intelligence and machine learning
Sensors and wearables
Yevgeniya is particularly interested in the use of wearables, biological signal processing and mathematical modelling of brain-body interactions linked to emotions to enhance our understanding of the interconnection between physical and mental health/performance, and the role different factors (e.g. social, environmental and genetic) play in defining this interconnection.
