Lucas Morillo-Mendez is a PhD student at the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University. He obtained his BSc in psychology from Complutense University of Madrid in 2013 and he completed his MSc in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience from Goldsmiths College (University of London) in 2014. Lucas’s has also worked as a clinical neuropsychologist and in the field of Human Factor research for the automotive industry (Galician Automotive Technology Centre). As a natural consequence of having been surrounded by engineers and stunning new technologies for so long, his academic interests are currently orbiting the interdisciplinary field of Human-Machine Interaction. His current research focuses on studying the impact that certain aspects of human perception may have in the design of interactions with intelligent systems for different user profiles, especially older adults.

Lucas is employed at Örebro University since 2018 as part of the Newbreed-Successful ageing interdisciplinary doctoral program, co-funded by the European Commission through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA COFUND).
