My area of research is Human-Robot Interaction; I study non-expert mental models of Interactive Task Learning (ITL) robots in a situated teaching interaction setting.
I study non expert mental models of robots in a situated teaching interaction setting. I conduct human participant studies to study the role of robot failures on the non-expert’s mental model of the robot. My goal is to build interaction mechanisms in an Interactive Task Learning robot that leverage natural human interaction patterns and help the human build a better mental model of the robot.
