MOUNIA ZIAT
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

Relying on my multidisciplinary background, my approach to science is holistic; my goals are to better understand perception and human interaction with the natural and artificial environment. For the last eighteen years, I have been studying haptic perception by combining engineering, cognitive psychology, human-computer interaction (HCI), and neuroscience to understand all aspects of human touch. From the moment fingers contact a surface to the time information reaches the brain, my research focusses on making sense of sensations that lead to a stable perception of the world.
