Picture of Gopika I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University. I am a member of the Intuitive Computing Laboratory, which is affiliated with the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare and the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics, and I am advised by Dr. Chien-Ming Huang. My research is supported by the Howard and Jacqueline Chertkof Endowed Fellowship and the 2018 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program fellowship. I am interested in human-robot interaction and assistive robotics.

Currently, my research focuses on understanding and effectively using information from different visual perspectives in human-robot collaboration. More broadly, my research goal is to explore different methods and sensory modalities for making the interaction between humans and assistive robots more natural.
