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 develop 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.
