Curriculum Vitae | Intuitive Computing Laboratory
I build intuitive, interactive technologies to provide social, physical, and behavioral support for people. I am particularly passionate about how these technologies can help aging adults and special needs populations such as children with autism spectrum disorders. My research draws on human-computer interaction, robotics, and artificial intelligence and seeks to improve people’s quality of life.

I am recruiting PhD students interested in HRI, HCI, Robotics, or AI.
