I am an Assistant Professor in the "EECS Department at UC Berkeley":http://eecs.berkeley.edu/. My goal is to enable robots to work with, around, and in support of people. I run the "InterACT Lab":http://interact.berkeley.edu/, where we focus on algorithms for human-robot interaction -- algorithms that move beyond the robot's function in isolation, and generate robot behavior that also accounts for interaction and coordination with end-users. We work across different applications, from assistive robots, to manufacturing, to autonomous cars, and draw from optimal control, planning, estimation, learning, and cognitive science. I also helped fund and serve on the steering committee for the "Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) Lab":http://bair.berkeley.edu/, and am a co-PI of the "Center for Human-Compatible AI":http://humancompatible.ai/.
