Katie Genter Welcome! I'm a Computer Science PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin. Before coming to Texas, I received a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Georgia Tech in May 2009.

I'm currently working with Peter Stone's Learning Agents Research Group (LARG). I'm working on a multiagent systems problem - we call it ad hoc teamwork - in which teammates must work together to obtain a common goal, but without any prior agreement regarding how to work together. I'm also involved with LARG's Standard Platform group on the Austin Villa Robot Soccer Team, which finished first in the world at Robocup 2012 in Mexico City!

I'm the Robocup 2017 Standard Platform League (SPL) Technical Committee chair and a co-chair of MIPC-17. I've also served as the RoboCup 2014, 2015, and 2016 SPL Technicial Committee chair, the RoboCup 2013 SPL Organizing Committee chair, and a co-chair for MIPC-16. I served on the GradFest committee from 2010 to 2016.
