My research objective is to understand the key principles required to
develop AI agents that assist humans in their daily lives. My research group
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.
