I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
at The University of Auckland
(NZ). Between October 2008 and May 2014, I was a faculty member at Texas Tech University
, where I am currently an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
. Prior to that, I was a Research Fellow in the School of Computer Science (CS
) at The University of Birmingham
(UK), and a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
at The University of Texas at Austin
My primary research interests include knowledge representation and reasoning, machine learning, 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, I am interested in developing learning and inference algorithms for application domains characterized by a significant amount of uncertainty. Contact me if you need any further information regarding my research, teaching or outreach activities.
