I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta, fortunate to be working with Matthew Taylor as part of The Intelligent Robot Learning Laboratory. I completed my Ph.D. at Washington University in St. Louis in the Computer Science and Engineering Department under the guidance of William Yeoh. I obtained an M.S degree in Computer Science from New Mexico State University and a B.S. in Electronics Engineering from Universidad Mayor de San Andres.
The objective of my research lies in studying the influence of human-agent-environment interaction and understanding how this interaction can benefit both humans and AI agents.
During my Ph.D. I focused on Stochastic Goal Recognition Design (S-GRD) Problems, where we study the environment’s influence on the agent’s behavior and use it to facilitate goal recognition.
My current interest is to optimize agents’ intervention or environment modification to help people thrive in different settings: academically (as an intelligent tutor) or in others like healthcare, where the agent’s timely involvement may facilitate rehabilitation.
