I am a PhD candidate in the Interactive Robotics Group at MIT developing new computational techniques - artificial intelligence - for human-robot teaming. After receiving a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, I began work in the IRG developing methods for coordinating human-robot teams in time and space. In addition to advancing the science of artificial intelligence, I think it is imperative that we understand the human factors issues in human-robot teamwork from a design perspective. With advanced algorithms and a proper understanding of human factors, I believe we can make the workplace safer, more efficient, and a more desirable place to work for humans.
My paper on Apprenticeship Scheduling, an Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning method for robots to learn to schedule from human teachers, was accepted IJCAI'16! Stay tuned - I will upload the paper to the publications section soon.
AAAI'16 Doctoral Consortium - I am one of 17 (out of 44 applicants) selected to participate in the AAAI'16 Doctoral Consortium and share my work with some of the best minds in the field! AAAI'16 will be held in Febraury 12-17, 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona.
My awesome undergraduate, Giancarlo Sturla, had his abstract on incremental scheduling accepted to AIAA SciTech 2016. Congrats Giancarlo! I will post the final publication soon.
