Stefanos Nikolaidis

I am an assistant professor in computer science at the University of Southern California, where I run the Interactive and Collaborative Autonomous Robotic Systems (ICAROS) lab. I graduated with a PhD from the CMU Robotics Institute and with a MS from MIT.

The ICAROS lab focuses on the core computational challenges in human-robot interaction: what are good models of human behavior, how to learn such models from noisy samples, and how to robustly generate actions for robotic teammates in large scale real-world applications. Our research spans the whole spectrum of human-robot interaction science: from distilling the fundamental mathematical principles that govern interactive behaviors, to developing approximation algorithms for deployed robotic systems and testing them "in the wild" with actual end users.
