My high-level research goals lie in developing novel techniques for the perception, modeling, and prediction of human social behavior to both further the understanding of human social dynamics in real-world environments and allow for the development of better interactive systems.

Below are some high-level topic areas and goals to motivate my work.

Modeling Non-verbal Communication in Human-Robot Task Collaborations

  • Embodied communication model applicable to a variety of task environments.
  • Factored communication and task planning for coordinated task performance and detection of assistive opportunities.
  • Adapting communication style and assistance strategies for individual users.

Investigating Robot Deictic Behaviors

  • Developing an empirical understanding of people’s perception of robot deixis
  • Practical models for gesture formulation in collocated task environments
