I’m a PhD student interested in researching embodied computational models of human behavior, especially perceptual, linguistic, and social skills. Using knowledge of how humans perceive and operate on the world and the social beings around them can inform the creation of more intelligent, adaptive, and communicative systems. I am particularly interested in the potential application of these skills in socially assistive robotics and robots for education. My other interests include human-robot interaction, natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and social learning across cultures.
