Human-Robotic Interaction, Social Agents, Assistive Robotics
I am working on the following projects in the HFA Lab:
- Investigating age-related differences in how individuals recognize emotion displayed by robots and virtual agents.
- Identifying needs of older adults and caregivers accommodated by a personal robot’s (PR2) mobile manipulation capabilities, as well as the factors that will lead to acceptance of such robotic assistance in a home environment.
- Completing the requirements for Ph.D. in Engineering Psychology
- Master of Science, Engineering Psychology, Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011
- Bachelor of Science, Psychology, West Virginia University, 2007
