I obtained my PhD from Purdue University in the Intelligent Systems and Assistive Technologies (ISAT) Lab in the School of Industrial Engineering, under the supervision of Dr. Juan P. Wachs. My dissertation topic was about One-Shot Gesture Recognition. I am currently a postdoc working with Dr. Maya Cakmak in the Human Centered Robotics Lab (HCR).
My research interests include human robot interaction (HRI) and multimodal interactions based on embodiment, including gestures. More specifically, I desire to conduct research in naturalistic and novel approaches to include cognitive and physiological aspects of human performance in collaborative tasks with other robots or other humans, either co-located or remotely.
