Ph.D. Position

If you are interested in joining our research group, please reach out to me some time before the application deadline. I am happy to provide some short tasks to help assess whether we would be a good fit to work together. This allows both sides to determine compatibility before making any commitments.

Our goal is to endow assistive technologies with the capacity to substitute, recover, empower, or augment human abilities. Towards that end, candidates will work on cutting-edge technologies. Since most of our work is technical, candidates with strong technical backgrounds are welcomed. We encourage students to take courses in one or more of the following areas: HCI, AI, Statistics, Algorithm, and Computer Systems.

Prior experience working with human subjects is not required but will be considered a plus. Ph.D. students will have the opportunity to generate their own research agenda.

Master’s / Capstone Projects

We have several open projects as well. If you are at Penn State looking for a Master’s project or Undergraduate capstone project, do not hesitate to shoot me an email. We will find a project that best suits your interest and background.
