After working in the industry for a few years, I have decided to rejoin the exciting world of academia. I am currently a first year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science department at University of Wisconsin-Madison. My primary research interest is in the field of human-robot interaction, predominantly the social aspect of it, and integrating robotic technologies into human activities and settings. In particular, I am interested in long-term companion robot engagement and deployments, as well as their integration within family and school environments.
