His research interests are the application and evaluation of constrained interfaces and operator assistance, predominantly in the realms of human-robot interaction, rehabilitation, transportation and intelligent systems.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
"My personal interest in disability and rehabilitation was so strong that I elected to pursue unfunded thesis research on this topic. To this day, I have maintained an active research theme in this area while building a career in human-robot interaction and intelligent systems. To me, QoLT is an opportunity to generate synergy between these fields at exactly the right moment in the history of these fields."
