I joined the Industrial and Operations Engineering Department at the University of Michigan in 2016. Prior to that, I was a postdoc at the Interactive Robotics Group of MIT and the SUTD-MIT International Design Center. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (Human Factors) from Nanyang Technological University in 2014, working with Taezoon Park and Christopher D. Wickens. My research interests include human-autonomy/robot interaction, human factors in high-risk industries and user experience design.
