Assistant Professor

Iowa State University


I am an Assistant Professor in Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department and affiliated with Human-Computer Interaction Program at Iowa State University. Prior to this position, I was a postdoc working with Prof. Xi Jessie Yang in IOE at the University of Michigan. I used to be a Strategic Research Intern at Honda Research Institute (HRI). I obtained my Ph.D. and M.S. in Industrial Engineering from the University of Washington working with Prof. Linda Boyle and Prof. Ashis Banerjee.

My current research focuses on Interactive Reinforcement Learning, Human Factors with applications to customized vehicle automation and human-robot interaction, and developing algorithms and frameworks for trust-aware adaptive systems.

My long-term research interest is to build customized AI systems as trustworthy teammates to better collaborate with human users in complex decision-making tasks. Specifically, my work aims to design human-in-the-loop learning algorithms leveraging implicit and hidden human feedback to achieve transparent and responsive interaction without interrupting or intruding.
