Intelligent Robotics Lab: Ph.D. Alumni
Learning Agents Lab: Postdoctoral Alumni
Patrick is interested in the intersection of AI and robotics. This includes human-robot interaction, cognitive models for robotic navigation, and developmental robotics. He is currently working on a sensor-to-symbol cognitive architecture, which will enable modular robotic platforms to be used in a variety of domains with minimal software changes.
