Stefanos Nikolaidis I am a graduate student at the Personal Robotics Lab, CMU Robotics Institute, advised by Prof. Siddharta Srinivasa. Before coming to CMU, I received an MS and worked as a Research Specialist in the Interactive Robotics Group, MIT, advised by Prof. Julie Shah.

My research lies at the intersection of human-robot interaction, game theory and robot planning under uncertainty. I draw upon insights from studies in economics, cognitive behavioral psychology and human team coordination, to propose or learn from data mathematical models of human behavior and integrate them into robot decision making in a principled way. Ultimately, my research is motivated by real world problems, thus I believe strongly in the importance of models that are scalable and robust, supporting deployed systems in real world applications.
