I am a computer scientist and roboticist by training. The goal of my research is to understand how we can build interactive computing technologies that are meaningful, intuitive, and appropriate for users, especially in complex social environments. My research crosses the boundaries between Human-Robot and Human-Computer Interaction, and often combines elements from robot perception, computer vision, machine learning, social science, and design.

I will start as an Assistant Professor at Yale University this upcoming Summer, and am looking for highly motivated students to join my lab. If you are interested in working with me on Robotics or HCI, please read this note about open positions at Yale before contacting me.

Currently, I am working as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Stanford A.I. Lab with Silvio Savarese. Prior to Stanford, I completed my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees at the Robotics Institute in Carnegie Mellon University. I was very lucky to work with Disney Research while in Pittsburgh.

An updated list of my publications can be found here, and in Google Scholar. The code for some of my projects is also hosted in GitHub.
