Research
I'm interested in entertainment technology. My current project involves working with Honda's ASIMO robot to find or create children's games that are both entertaining and within ASIMO's abilities, and then to teach ASIMO to play them with/against human opponents in an entertaining setting.

Previous Research
Migration of Legacy and Network Applications, a.k.a. Zap
