Research interests:

I do research in Artificial Intelligence, particularly using robots. My emphasis is on learning systems that perform low level and high level planning and execution in the world. My current research uses a case-based reasoning knowledge core to serve a hybrid robot control system. I also have interests in introspective and metacognitive reasoning. I am always looking for students interested in independent study or working with me on summer research.
