Bio: Claudia D'Arpino is a PhD Candidate in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT, advised by Prof. Julie A. Shah in the Interactive Robotics Group since 2012. She received her degrees in Electronics Engineering (2008) and Masters in Mechatronics (2010) from the Simon Bolivar University in Caracas, Venezuela, where she served as Assistant Professor in the Electronics and Circuits Department (2010-2012) with a focus on Robotics. Her research at CSAIL combines machine learning and planning techniques to empower humans through the use of robotics and AI. She participated in the DARPA Robotics Challenge with Team MIT (2012-2015). Her PhD research centers in enabling robots to learn and create strategies for multi-step manipulation tasks by observing demonstrations, and develop efficient methods for robots to employ these skills in collaboration with humans, either for shared workspace collaboration, such as assembly in manufacturing, or for remote robot control in shared autonomy, such as emergency response scenarios.
