Research Interests:

Healthcare robotics, assistive robotics, mobile manipulation, human-robot interaction, intelligent systems that perceive and act.

Our research seeks to advance the capabilities of real robots so that they can provide valued assistance to people in unstructured environments. We work with semi-autonomous mobile robots that physically manipulate the world. Healthcare serves as an important motivating application area for most of our research. Our projects involve research into human-robot interaction, autonomous mobile manipulation, machine perception, machine learning, and haptics.
