I am currently a 4th year Ph.D. student under the supervision of Prof. Yasamin Mostofi. My main research interest is human-robot collaborations. I study different aspects of human-robot collaborations, in particular, I would like to equip robots with the ability of predicting human performance given a task. This will allow the robots to ask for human help when humans can indeed be of help, making more efficient and effective human-robot collaborations.
