-Our research addresses complete perception-action loops, from computer vision to grasping and manipulation. ​ Much of our work uses machine learning to enable robots to synthesize and improve complex and robust sensorimotor behavior with experience. Related areas of interest include human-robot interaction,​ image and video analysis, and visual neuroscience.+We seek to answer the question: //How can we enable robots to acquire the knowledge and understanding they require to interact sensibly with unstructured environments?​ //

 +Our research addresses complete perception-action loops, from computer vision to grasping and manipulation, using reactive algorithms and/or cognitive models.  Much of our work uses machine learning to enable robots to synthesize and improve complex and robust sensorimotor behavior with experience. Related areas of interest include human-robot interaction,​ image and video analysis, and visual neuroscience.
