I began my studies at the University of Texas at El Paso in Computer Science. Continuing with robotics and along with several years in interdisciplinary research I completed my graduate studies, and subsequent posting as an Assistant Professor, at Waseda University. I am interested in embodied intelligence and how humans can interact with intelligences beyond their own, of particular interest being how humans and robots or other intelligent systems can communicate while moving through and coexisting in the same and remote spaces. At its most basic, communication is a two step process: transmission and reception. Many of the issues facing humanity today can be ameliorated through improved communication and understanding, an area I see robotics and XR systems playing a major role. My previous works include human-robot/human-computer interaction research, particularly as relates to mobile robot navigation, novel interfaces, wireless sensor networks/IOT, and education software. Among my research interests are HRI/HCI, mobile robots, cognitive systems, VR/AR/XR, and intelligent systems.
