My research focuses on cooperative intelligence and control for mixed teams of humans and autonomous robotic vehicles. I currently work in three problem areas:
-cooperative human-robot sensing and perception
-modeling and prediction of human decision making and task performance
-robust fusion of complex information in dynamic human-robot networks
I'm looking for motivated PhD students, MS students, and undergraduates with strong backgrounds in engineering, physical science, computer science, or applied math to join my new research group at CU Boulder. If you're interested, please e-mail me your resume along with a brief (~1 paragraph) description about yourself, your goals and your specific research interests -- no form letters please!
