I am currently focussing on two topics: Physics-based Manipulation and The Mathematics of Human-Robot Interaction. They are heavily intertwined, both born out of the goal of robots performing complex manipulation tasks with and around people.

Physics-based Manipulation: I focus on using physics in the design of actions, algorithms, and hands for manipulation:

The Mathematics of Human-Robot Interaction: I focus on formalizing Human-Robot Interaction principles using machine learning, motion planning, and function gradient algorithms:

I have greatly enjoyed collaborating with HRI researchers, and our joint exploration has broadened my understanding of humans, robots, and mathematics.

I am also interested in Manipulation Planning: extending randomized planners to constraint manifolds and Perception for Manipulation: my group has developed MOPED: an efficient object recognition and pose estimation system for manipulation.
