Director, Collaborative AI and Robotics Laboratory (CAIRO Lab)
I am interested in developing algorithms to facilitate the creation of autonomous robots that can safely and productively learn from and work with humans. In particular, my lab's work serves to enable and facilitate collaborative artificial intelligence, allowing robots to make human teammates safer, more effective, and more efficient at their tasks. As such, my group's research spans many fields, including Explainable AI, Learning from Demonstration, Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning, Behavioral Modeling, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Cognitive Science, and Human-Robot Interaction.

About Me

When I am not busy with research, you can typically find me skiing, hiking, playing acoustic guitar, training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or playing ice hockey!
