Dr. Muneeb Ahmad's research is situated within the Human-Centred Robotics domain and is at the Intersection of Human-Robot/Agent Interaction, Intelligent Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). His research focuses on employing methods from the field of human-centred computing to create intelligent interactive systems such as intelligent social robots, and user interfaces that can adapt to users through real-time analysis of their social signals and physiological data. He is interested in the applications of machine learning to implement intelligent interactive systems. The work further involves the evaluation of these interactive systems to study their impact on human behaviour mainly to see their level of social engagement, cognitive load, perceived trust, and performance.

He has published numerous articles in top journals and conferences including HRI and HAI Conference, Frontiers in Robotics and AI and others. He regularly organises top-tiered conferences (AI-HRI, IDC, HAI) and is a General Chair of the 12th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction. He also acts a Guest Editor for the ACM Transaction in Human-Robot Interaction and Frontiers in Robotics and AI journals.

He joined the Department of Computer Science as a Lecturer at Swansea University in September 2020 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in March 2022 Before joining Swansea University, he worked as a Research Associate at the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics in the Department of Computer Science at the Heriot-Watt University on the EPSRC ORCA-Hub project, where he led the development of a measurement of Cognitive load in the Human-Robotic/Computer Interaction.
