I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science
at Texas Tech University
. From September 2007 to October 2008, I was a Research Fellow in the School of Computer Science (CS
) at The University of Birmingham
(UK) on the Cognitive Systems (CoSy
) project. Prior to that, I was a Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department (ECE
) at The University of Texas at Austin
My primary research interests include machine learning, planning, computer vision and cognitive science as applied to autonomous mobile robots. I develop algorithms that enable robots to collaborate with non-expert human participants, acquiring and using sensor inputs and high-level human feedback based on need and availability. Furthermore, we are interested in developing learning and inference algorithms for application domains characterized by a large amount of data and a significant amount of uncertainty. Contact me if you need any further information regarding my research, teaching or outreach activities.
