Combining machine learning and planning to empower humans through the use of robotics and AI

Claudia Pérez D'Arpino

I am a PhD Candidate in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT. My research at CSAIL focuses on models and algorithms for predictive agents that improve the efficiency of human robot collaboration, mainly in manipulation tasks. I’m interested in the applications of humans working together with robots, both when human and robot share the workspace such as in manufacturing or when humans act as an operator of a robot in a remote environment as is the case of disaster response.

I currently work with Prof. Julie A. Shah at the Interactive Robotics Group (IRG) at MIT. I focus on predictive models for human motion applied to human-robot collaboration in manufacturing and supervised teleautonomy in disaster response. I participated in the DARPA Robotics Challenge (2012-2015) with the Team MIT.

Prior to MIT I worked in the Simón Bolívar University in Venezuela, where I hold an Assistant Professorship in the Electronics and Circuits Department and the Mechatronics Research Group. My background includes mobile robotics, computer vision, teleoperation, UAVs and state estimation.

I tweet about robotics at @cpdarobotics, post recent videos about my research progress on youtube, keep a resume in linkedin and have a Google Scholar profile.
