Robots will make mistakes eventually and in doing so will jeopardize the trust that human’s have in them. How do they recover form this violation and what is the best way to do so? Does it make a difference if they look or act human? Does the type of violation matter? These are all questions I’m interested in and examine in my past, present, and future research streams.



Areas of interest

Robotics, Human-Robot Interaction, Trust, Trustworthiness, Trust Repair, and Teamwork.
