Bio

I am a robotics researcher, working in human-robot interaction and dynamic manufacturing tasks, interested in limitations of modelling and inference for interactive tasks, multimodal environment/user representations and task representation. 

Some of my academic projects and personal projects can be found on their respective pages on the left.

I can be most easily contacted at khaninger (at) berkeley (dot) edu
