My research focus is to develop learning algorithms that enable machine social skills. Autonomous robots acting as our teammates can help in many tasks - ranging from mundane household or office work, to critical search and rescue missions during disaster relief. I am interested to pursue theoretical and application aspects of unsupervised learning, sequence modeling and reinforcement learning.
