I completed my PhD in May 2012 from the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University.
In my thesis, I studied how our phones and robots can use human help to complete tasks more effectively. In order to maintain usability while asking for help, I modeled humans in the environment to determine whether to ask for help, who to ask, when and where. (Videos here).
My advisors were Manuela Veloso and Anind Dey.
