I am an Assistant Professor in Information Science at Cornell University and the Nancy H. ’62 and Philip M. ’62 Young Sesquicentennial Faculty Fellow. My research focuses on the intersections of teamwork, robots, and emotion. The goal of his research is to inform our basic understanding of emotions in robot supported teamwork as well as to inform how we design robot to support teamwork by acting on a team’s emotional dynamics. I lead the Robots in Groups Lab, which seeks to contribute to our basic understanding of group dynamics and how group dynamics can be shaped by robots implicitly and by design.
