Teaching  |  Research  Brief Bio   | SLED

My research interests are in the area of natural language processing, situated dialogue agents, human-robot communication, and artificial intelligence. I'm particuarly interested in language processing that is sensorimotor-grounded, pragmatically-rich, and cognitively-motivated. My recent work has focused on grounded language processing to facilitate situated communication with robots and other artificial agents. I'm a member of Michigan AI Lab and direct the Situated Langauge and Embodied Dialogue (SLED) research group . I am also affiliated with Michigan Robotics Institute.
