Dirk Van Rooy received a PhD in social computational psychology at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. He subsequently worked at the Applied Cognitive Science Lab at The School of Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State University (USA) where his research focused on AI, HCI and user modelling. After that, he moved to the UK – first at the University of Keele, subsequently in the Social Cognitive Neuroscience Group up at the University of Birmingham. He moved to the ANU in December 2007.
