I am a second year graduate student at Yale University pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science. I work with Brian Scassellati in the Social Robotics Lab. I am interested in socially assistive robotics, human-robot interaction, artificial intelligence, and machine learning.
My research focuses on the development of robot teammates that promote positive team social dynamics in addition to the reliable completion of assigned tasks. My work explores behaviors and cognitive models social robots can use to shape group trust, assist in mental model sharing, and enhance group psychological safety.
