PhD projects

My research interests lie in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to create intelligent, autonomous robots that can work with or for humans. I have worked on long-term autonomy for mobile robots, information-processing architectures for intelligent systems, the integration of AI planning techniques into a variety of robot systems, and the use of qualitative spatial representations to enable robots to reason about the possibilities for action in their worlds. My research is performed as part of the Intelligent Robotics Lab.
