My research lies at modeling human like behavior in human robot interaction. Much of my research is about inferring the intent in interaction. My most recent work focuses on in autonomous vehicles. Representative papers are highlighted.
I will be at Open Door 2023 at RISE Lab, Poly campus showing some of our work.
I successfully completed my Comprehensive Exam on 30th Nov 2022!!
