“[The Robot] can look at your face, and draw your face…it can play chess with you…the main focus is on furthering development in robot-human collaborations.”

From WKU Public Relations:

“I’ve always been interested in electronics and technology. I think I started first working with a soldering iron when I was around nine years old. I’ve always known that it is something I liked.”

Senior Liam Seymour brought his early passion for technology into his WKU experience. As an Electrical Engineering major, he is pursuing innovative projects here on the Hill with funding from KY NSF EPSCoR.

Liam works as a student research assistant at the WKU Center for Energy Systems, tackling real-world challenges with a focus on researching robot-human collaboration. Liam is one of 24 Hilltoppers who shared their research at the 2023 Posters at the Capitol event in Frankfort on March 2, 2023.
