I have recently become interested in behavioral robotics and human-robot interactions, as a natural extension of my interests in animal behavior (People and Robots). My work on navigation has led to my current NSF funding to study olfactory navigation in humans and search dogs. I am therefore also interested in new sensor technology (Health Initiative). Finally, my work on olfactory navigation has led me to think about the role of olfaction in the use of architectural space (Connected Communities).
