*The Bangor Social Robotics Workshop on the Emerging Social Neuroscience of Human-Robot Interaction that Emily Cross and I organized took place on the 17th and 18th of August!  A short summary can be found here.

*Two cultures merge! We received a ESRC Impact Acceleration Award for an artist-in-residency. Artist Merel Bekking will collaborate with Emily Cross and me on an art installation involving robots! More info soon!

*A very first preprint! Felix Hekele, Emily Cross and I wrote a review on the perception and reaction to emotions expressed by artificial agents. Read it at PsychArXiv

*My research on the bystander effect was features in an article in Psychologie Magazine.
