Louise Charpiot is a PhD student in psychology working at the research group Health Promotion and Aggression Prevention within the Institute for Health and Behavior from the research unit INSIDE, under the supervision of Prof. Georges Steffgen. 

Louise Charpiot completed her Master’s degree in Cognitive Science for Business at the University of Lille (France) after a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Her Master’s thesis was completed through a partnership between the University of Lille and the University of Luxembourg’s research group Health Promotion and Aggression Prevention. It explored the use of a robot to teach emotional ability to children with autism.

She then joined the University of Luxembourg as a technical collaborator in 2017. She worked with the research unit INSIDE as well as with AI Robolab (CSC research unit) to support the implementation of robot-assisted therapy and to develop real-world use-cases for autism solutions (robot-assisted device).

In her doctoral project that she has been conducting since 2018, she investigates the impact of using robot-assisted interventions developed for autism in practitioners working with children with autism.

Her current research interests include emotions, well-being, user case experiences & assessment, new technologies and robot-assist interventions.
