Simon Fraser University
As a PhD student in robotics and computer science, Shokoofeh is passionate about designing intuitive communication methods with robots. Shokoofeh has been fascinated by the immense potential of robotics ever since she cocreated a team of soccer playing robots for an international robotics competition during her undergraduate studies.
Working with robots is fun and challenging for her and helps her bring into reality some part of her perception of
robots captured from science fiction. She has served as the president and also the communications coordinator of the Women in Computing Science Student Society (WICS) of Simon Fraser University (SFU) for more than two years, to help in building a supportive environment for women in computing science.
