Stephanie Milani '19, Computer Science and Psychology and member of the Honors College, has been named UMBC's Researcher of the Week!
As part of the Robotics Institute Summer Scholars (RISS) program at Carnegie Mellon University, Stephanie researched how robots can integrate human values and norms into accomplishing tasks so that they "can learn how to act in environments where there may be social ramifications to actions." Her mentor is Dr. Katia Sycara of Carnegie Mellon's Robotics Institute.
"If you find someone's research findings interesting," Stephanie says, "then contact them about it! They may have opportunities for you to work with them."
Besides publishing her work in the RISS Working Papers Journal, Stephanie is planning to present her work at URCAD this spring.
