The central motivating theme of my research is to develop robot technologies that enable close, natural, and extended cooperation with humans. I envision mixed human-robot ecologies where complex control commands can be instructed through natural language, and robots are able to anticipate people’s needs, provide the best support to them, and even influence their intents and behaviors. My work focuses on the design of human-aware robot control systems that allow robots to embrace the interaction with the human and the external world by design. This will allow for humans and robots to accomplish together what neither of them can do alone.
