My research objective is to understand the key principles required to develop AI agents that assist humans in their daily lives. My research group develops new formal frameworks, algorithms and implementations for planning and acting efficiently under uncertainty. I am particularly interested in algorithms for computing safe and reliable AI behavior. This includes hierarchical abstractions for computing and explaining goal-directed agent behavior, as well as methods for learning generalizable knowledge that would help the AI system solve similar problems more efficiently.
