Rey J Pocius (University of Southern California)

Rey Pocius is a PhD student at the University of Southern California working with Stefanos Nikolaidis. His current research interests include human-robot collaboration, shared-autonomy, haptics, and decision-making under uncertainty. Rey received his B.S. in Computer Science from Oregon State University where he worked with Bill Smart in the Personal Robotics Group and Alan Fern. He has previously interned at the Navy Center for Applied Research in Artificial Intelligence working with Mark Roberts and David W. Aha.

Nathaniel Dennler (University of Southern California)
Heather Culbertson (University of Southern California)

Heather Culbertson is a Gabilan Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the University of Southern California. Her research focuses on the design and control of haptic devices and rendering systems, human-robot interaction, and virtual reality. Particularly she is interested in creating haptic interactions that are natural and realistically mimic the touch sensations experienced during interactions with the physical world. Previously, she was a research scientist in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University where she worked in the Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine (CHARM) Lab. She received her PhD in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM) at the University of Pennsylvania in 2015 working in the Haptics Group, part of the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Laboratory. She completed a Masters in MEAM at the University of Pennsylvania in 2013, and earned a BS degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno in 2010. She is currently serving as the Vice-Chair for Information Dissemination for the IEEE Technical Committee on Haptics.
