I am a new Assistant Professor in the EECS Department at UC Berkeley. I am starting the InterACT Lab: Interactive Autonomy and Collaborative Technologies. Previously, I was a PhD student at Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute and a member of the Personal Robotics Lab. My research interests are in algorithmic human-robot interaction, and lie at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and HCI. My goal is to enable robots to work with and around people, and I employ techniques from optimal control, manipulation, Bayesian inference, and cognitive science to do so.
Prospective students: I am taking on graduate students this coming year, so please apply! Unfortunately, the large number of requests makes it impossible to talk to everyone before admissions. But I would very much like to hear from you once you have been admitted!
