My research field is human-robot interaction. I am particularly interested in the following topics: joint activities between humans and robots; human-robot teamwork and collaboration, in particular with respect to interaction fluency; robotic personal companions; non-anthropomorphic robot design; computational models for embodied cognition in robots, in particular with respect to artificial practice; anticipation and timing in HRI and multi-agent MDPs; entertainment, theater, and musical performance robots; robot improvisation; nonverbal communication in HRI; and embodiment in HCI.
My research is supported by EC FP7 grant PCIG9-GA-2011-293733.
Great miLAb representation at TEI'15
. Say Hi to miLAbbers Oren Zuckerman and Ronit Slyper!
Travis was represented at the Art, Science, and Technology exhibit in Kiev.
Just discovered this interview
with Roger Bingham from way back in February.
Two beautiful books to which I contributed interviews landed on my desk today.
Two of our lab's papers were accepted
to HRI 2015
! Looking forward to seeing everyone in Portland.
This site is only just growing up. There’s more at my old site
The video talk below gives a nice overview of some of my research.
And this interview accurately reflects some of my societal thoughts on human-robot interaction.
