I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science, Psychology, and Industrial Engineering at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the director of the HCI Laboratory. I received my PhD degree from Carnegie Mellon University‘s Human-Computer Interaction Institute in 2009.
I am the chief editor of the HRI section of the journal Frontiers in Robotics & AI. If you are an HRI researcher interested in publishing in a rigorous, open-access venue, please submit! I am also an associated editor of Human-Computer Interaction and Foundations and Trends® in Human-Computer Interaction. I am also the co-chair of the HRI Steering Committee.

Below are highlights of ongoing activities, awards, and news. [Last update: June 2020]
My research in human-robot interaction (HRI) builds human-centered principles and methods to enable effective and intuitive interactions between people and robotic technologies and facilitate the successful integration of these technologies into human environments. Below are highlights from ongoing projects in the HCI Lab.
I work with a fantastic group of advisees who come from a diverse set of background including computer science, industrial design, industrial engineering, and history who are already building their own research programs. If you are interested in working with me, please read this page.
