I am a project scientist at National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC). Since 1996, I have had extensive experiences in developing intelligent systems in commercial, government, and defense projects. Currently, I am leading two projects as a principal investigator as part of ARL's Robotics CTA program and DARPA ALIAS program. For more information, please visit my personal webpage.
My research interests are focused on creating high level artificial intelligence for autonomous robots. My research toward this goal requires bringing broad fields of AI and robotics together, including natural language understanding, perception, path planning and manipulation, cognitive architecture, and human-robot interaction. I investigate machine learning techniques and probabilistic recipes to build a robot's understanding of an environment and situation awareness in various contexts. To this end, I enjoy collaborating with researchers in various subfields of robotics and AI.
