Hello! I’m an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore. My research interests are broadly in human-AI/robot interaction, machine learning, and robotics. I’m particularly fascinated by collaborative robots. Previously, I’ve worked on robots that help children get around, continuous robot/machine learning, controlling disease spread, and self-driving cars.
