I am a graduate student under Prof. Naomi Fitter in the SHARE Lab at Oregon State University where I work on assistive robots for older adults. I have previously worked with Prof. Heather Knight on expressive arm motion and Dr. Cristina Wilson on robot operator trust and confidence here at OSU. My undergrad was at the University of Washington where I worked under Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa on assistive feeding.
