Kamrad Khoshhal Roudposhti received the Ph.D. degree (in electrical and computer engineering) from the University of Coimbra, Portugal in 2014  under the supervision of Professor Jorge Dias.

Currently, Kamrad is researcher at  the (ISR-UC) Institute of Systems and Robotics - Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering - University of Coimbra, Portugal, within the group of Professor Urbano Nunes, collaborating with AMS-HMI12 ( ASSISTED MOBILITY SUPPORTED BY SHARED-CONTROL AND ADVANCED HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACES) project with supervision of Prof. Urbano José Carreira Nunes . Kamrad has also collaborated with the European Project PROMETHEUS, Prediction and interpretation of human behaviour based on probabilistic structures and heterogeneous sensors, within the 7° framework FP7 (from 2008 to 2011) and European Project APSUBA - Active Perception for Scene Understanding and Behaviour Analysis (APSUBA): An application for Social Robotic (from 2011 to 2012).  During the Ph.D. research Kamrad Khoshhal Roudposhti was sponsored by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology. 


My interest topics: My main research topic is "Human Behaviour Understanding by Body Motion analyzing".

  • Human behaviour analysis
  • Human movement analysis 
  • Human action analysis
  • Social signal processing
  • Human-Robot interaction
  • Pattern recognition
  • Computer vision
  • Robotic
