I received my undergraduate degree in computer science in 1999 and my masters degree in 2002 from the Georgia Institute of Technology. From 2003 to 2005, I worked with the speech recognition group at BBN Technologies. In 2011, I received my PhD from McGill University under Prof. Joelle Pineau.
|Research Summary:||My research interests focus on decision-making and learning algorithms
and their application to real world domains. In particular, I focus on the use
of probabilistic graphical models, such as Markov Decision Process, Partially
Observable Markov Decision, and Hidden Markov Models. My recent work has
addressed the use of such models as a principled approach to learning and
control in human-robot interaction. I address issues such as use of
probabilistic models for modelling and fusing sensor data, modelling human
behavior, and generating social content.
