Runze is working towards developing a computational framework for automated discovery and modeling of human rhythms. This project aims to understand the complex principles behind the physical and psychological abnormalities of human bodies, to plan life schedules, and avoid persisting fatigue and mood and sleep alterations due to the desynchronization of those rhythms.

My research is focused on Human-Robot-Interaction using emotion recognition and adaptation in humanoid robots. I am particularly interested in using these adaptive humanoid robots for applications such as pain management in children, mental health wellbeing, and fighting loneliness. I use reinforcement learning methods along with facial expression recognition and voice quality analysis for emotion recognition. With the help of these adaptation methods, I hope to explore the capabilities of these robots for detecting unique individual patterns and behaviors for improvement in health outcomes and positive interactions with members of our community. In my free time, I am interested in filmmaking and participating in debates.
