Education Massachusetts Institute of Technology Oct. 2015 - Present Postdoctoral Associate, PI: Julie Shah Yale University Sept. 2009 – Sept. 2015 Doctor of Philosophy, Computer Science Dissertation: Supportive Behaviors for Human-Robot Teaming, Advisor: Brian Scassellati Master of Philosophy, Computer Science Master of Science, Computer Science Boston College Sept. 2004 - May 2008 Bachelor of Science with Honors, Computer Science. Bachelor of Arts, Mathematics. Concentration, Scientific Computation Experience I'm a Postdoctoral Associate in the MIT Interactive Robotics Group working on Human-Robot Teaming to improve the safety and capabilities of collaborative robots. Guest Lecturer - Worcester Polytechnic Institute, RBE526 – Human Robot Interaction, 11/20/14 Teaching Assistant Sep. 2011 - May 2012 Department of Computer Science, Yale University. Graded written and programming assignments, conducted study sessions and held office consultations with undergraduate and graduate students. Managed multiple teams of undergraduate and graduate researchers during semester-long research efforts. Lead teaching assistant for Intelligent Robotics and Artificial Intelligence courses. Teaching Assistant Jan. 2006 - May 2008 Department of Computer Science, Boston College. Graded written and programming assignments and tutored undergraduate students. Held teaching assistant responsibilities for classes ranging from Introduction to Computer Science to senior-level electives I work towards creating autonomous robots that can safely and productively work side-by-side with humans. I am particularly interested in developing algorithms that allow these robots to make human workers more efficient at their jobs. As such, my research spans many fields, including Learning from Demonstration, Hierarchical Learning, Multi-agent Planning, User Modeling, and Human-Robot Interaction.
