research overview

  • 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‚Äôs 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.

Teaching

courses taught

  • CSCI 3302 - Introduction to Robotics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022
    Introduces students to fundamental concepts in autonomous robotics: mechanisms, locomotion, kinematics, control, perception and planning. Consists of lectures and lab sessions that are geared toward developing a complete navigation stack on a miniature mobile robotic platform. Same as ECEN 3303.
  • CSCI 4830 - Special Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2022
    Covers topics of interest in computer science at the senior undergraduate level. Content varies from semester to semester. Only 9 credit hours from CSCI 4830 and/or CSCI 4831 can count toward Computer Science BS or BA.
  • CSCI 4950 - Senior Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 / Fall 2022
    Provides an opportunity for senior computer science majors to conduct exploratory research in computer science. Department enforced restriction, successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours of Computer Science coursework and approved WRTG. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours.
  • CSCI 6950 - Master's Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021 / Spring 2022
    -
  • CSCI 7000 - Current Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Summer 2020 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
    Covers research topics of current interest in computer science that do not fall into a standard subarea. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours.
  • ECEN 3303 - Introduction to Robotics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022
    Introduces students to fundamental concepts in autonomous robotics: mechanisms, locomotion, kinematics, control, perception and planning.
