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.
