Katie Genter Welcome! I'm a 7th year 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 2016 Standard Platform League (SPL) Technical Committee chair. I've also served as the RoboCup 2014 and 2015 SPL Technicial Committee chair as well as the RoboCup 2013 SPL Organizing Committee chair. I'm also on the GradFest committee, which helps recruit new PhD computer science students to the University of Texas at Austin.
