Tamara Lorenz



is a senior PhD student at the Institute of Information-oriented Control at Technische Universität München and the Experimental Psychology Institute at Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich, Germany.
She holds a diploma (master equivalent) in mechanical engineering with a major in human-machine interaction. Her research focuses on joint action and dynamical systems and how these principles emerging in human interaction can add to improve human-robot interaction. Especially, she is interested in how acceptance and safety in HRI can be improved in repetitive interaction tasks (i.e. pick and place tasks) by improving the predictability of robotic movements.
Currently she is involved in the organization of the HRI Pioneers Workshop 2014.
