I am a Ph.D. graduate in Computer Science at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, studying under Professor Lynne E. Parker.

My Ph.D. research was focused on applications of Human-Centered Robotics (HCR), where I created intelligent, autonomous humanoid robots and augmented reality systems to teach students. In creating an intelligent system for this purpose, I investigated issues of perception, cognitive reasoning and decision making, and human-robot interaction.
