Research Interests

I am interested in the study of truly autonomous robotic systems operating in complex, unstructured environments. These systems need to interpret the environment, make efficient plans, and react to uncertainties and their own mistakes. The complexity of many environments, however, makes predetermined behaviors insufficient in many situations. I am researching how on-line learning techniques can enable robots to adjust to such situations by improving their performance with experience. This opens up all sorts of interesting opportunities in pushing the versatility of such systems.
