I am a third year M.S./Ph.D. student in computer science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
I am a member of the Autonomous Mobile Robotics Laboratory (AMRL), advised by Professor Joydeep Biswas (now of the University of Texas at Austin). My current work centers around creating technologies to allow multiple humans to interact with a single robot simultaneously.
Previously, I worked with Professor Audrey St John on the the application of Rigidity and Persistence Theory to build robust multi-robot formations which retain their global shape as they move.
