I'm interested in designing algorithms for effective, safe, and intuitive robotics. My research thus far has focused on combining machine learning, Bayesian statistics, and control theory for human-oriented application domains, such as assistive and rehabilitation robotics. I've developed methods for safe shared control of human-machine systems, as well as explored learning-based solutions for improving a robot's understanding of human intent. In my work, I'm also interested in using robotics to discover underlying principles of human learning to then incorporate them into designing shared-autonomy interfaces and robot-aided rehabilitation.
