Birthe Nesset is currently working on a PhD on the topic: trust in Human-Robot Interactions as part of the UKRI Tast Node on Trust project. She is especially interested in non verbal communication in relation to robot failure ('where failure is more interesting that success').
She is co-supervised by Prof Helen Hastie (Department of Computer Science, Heriot-Watt University).
She previously completed a B.Eng. in Electrical engineering focusing on Industrial Automation at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Birthe is currently doing an introduction study in Psychology at NTNU simultaneously with the PhD. She has completed a MSc. in Human-Robot Interaction, focusing on transparency and its effect on trust in HRI.
