My research interests lie in machine vision and learning, especially as applied to mobile robot perception and navigation. Robotics and intelligent systems together have the potential to revolutionize the way we live and work, keeping us safe, keeping us healthy, and eliminating dangerous and tedious tasks from our lives. But the main barrier to widespread use of inexpensive robots is that current systems lack crucial abilities to perceive and interact with the surrounding environment. In my work I aim to eliminate this barrier by combining statistical learning theory with computer vision and integrating the resulting technology into autonomous robot sensory and control systems. I am interested in a diverse set of potential applications, including landmine removal, security systems, agriculture, and mobility or health care for the elderly.
