My name is Inês Lobo, and I am a Ph.D. student in the AI for People and Society Research Group at INESC-ID, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal.

I have a master’s degree in Information Systems and Computer Engineering, specializing in Games and Intelligent Systems.

I am interested in conducting research in the areas of social intelligent agents, human-agent interaction, video games, and social sciences.

My most recent published work has focused on the incorporation of concepts related with social identities and practices into virtual agents and agent-based social simulations. I have also been researching the potential of using video games as a tool to explore socially appropriate behaviour and human-AI partnership.

In addition to my PhD studies, I actively contribute to the outreach efforts of my research lab by managing its social media channels. During my free time, I enjoy painting and writing poetry.
