Members of the InterACT Lab:

Anca Dragan
Anca is an Assistant Professor in the EECS Department at UC Berkeley. She founded the InterACT lab, and helped found the Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) lab. She obtained her PhD from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
Dylan Hadfield-Menell
Dylan is a PhD student in EECS. His research interests center on the application of AI techniques to robotics problems.
Sandy Huang
Sandy is a PhD student in EECS.
Jaime Fisac
Jaime is a PhD student in EECS. He seeks to understand the interactions between humans and other agents in their environment, bringing together techniques from control theory, machine learning, cognitive science and game theory to design human-centered systems that can leverage synergies while guaranteeing safety.
Andrea Bajcsy
Andrea is a PhD student in EECS. Her research interests lie in the area of physical human-robot interaction, learning, and controls.
Kush Bhatia
Kush is a PhD student in EECS.
Andreea Bobu
Andreea is a PhD student in EECS. She is interested in continual learning in a multiagent setting and bringing together machine learning, computer vision, and human-robot interaction.
Ellis Ratner
Ellis is a PhD student in EECS. His research interests lie in the intersection of robotics and machine learning
Smitha Milli
Smitha is a PhD student in EECS. She is focused on making ML systems more reliable and robust. She is particularly interested in how to use interaction with humans to ensure that a system has learned the right objective or behavior.
Sid Reddy
Sid is a PhD student in EECS. He is interested in machine learning, human-robot interaction, and brain-computer interfaces.
Aaron Bestick
Aaron is a PhD student in EECS. His research focuses on the modeling and control of physical interactions between humans and robotic manipulators.
Rohin Shah
Rohin is a PhD student in EECS. He is interested in algorithms that can infer humans' objectives. He is currently working on a practical algorithm for inverse reinforcement learning that can take into account a human's systematic cognitive biases, rather than assuming that the human is rational.
Allan Zhou
Allan is an undergraduate student working on expressive motion.
Nick Landolfi
Nick Landolfi is an undergraduate student working on control for autonomous cars that interact with people and robot arms that infer human intent.
Jason Zhang
Jason is an undergraduate student working on learning from corrections.
Hong Jeon
Hong is an undergraduate student working on natural robot motion.
Malayandi (Andy) Palaniappan
Andy is an undergraduate student working on human-robot collaboration.
Dhruv Malik
Dhruv is an undergraduate student working on human-robot collaboration.
McKane Andrus
McKane is an undergraduate student working on the cooperative control of robots.
Stephen Wang
Stephen is an undergraduate student.
Eli Bronstein
Eli is an undergraduate student.

  • Becoming a Member:

  • Berkeley graduate students: Send email to Anca! Also, it will be useful to take the Algorithmic Human-Robot Interaction course.
  • Perspective graduate students: We would love to talk to you after you get admitted. Please apply to the CS (or EECS) PhD program under the AI (or CIR) areas.
  • Berkeley undergraduate students: Send email to Anca summarizing your project experience, what areas from our Research page you are interested in, and how much time you are able to commit. Attach you transcript and resume.
  • Non-Berkeley undergraduate students: Unfortunately, we do not offer internships to non-Berkeley undergraduates.
