Research Interests

I am interested in humanoid robotics, focusing on the intersection of computer vision and planning.

My aim is to equip humanoids with some of the perception skills needed to autonomously navigate, manipulate and interact in everyday human environments. This includes biped walking, obstacle avoidance, object localization & grasping, tracking and interacting with people, etc. The resulting algorithms and methods should be generally applicable in vision and robotics, but deliver particularly interesting results on a humanoid.

I currently spend most of my time working with a Honda ASIMO. When in Japan, I do research on an HRP-2 humanoid robot.
