My name Barry Lumpkin, a PhD student in both the USC Interaction Lab under Maja Mataric and the Natural Language Dialogue Group under David Traum. My research is funded through the Annenberg Graduate Fellowship. I graduated from Arizona State University in 2010 with my BS and in 2012 with my MS in Computer Science. My research interests are in the use of rich character backstories and personality to develop relationships with users to influence their behavior.
