dc.descriptionDmitry Berenson received a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University in 2005, where he started his robotics work in Hod Lipson's lab. He went on to graduate from the Ph.D. program at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in 2011, where his advisors were Siddhartha Srinivasa and James Kuffner. In August 2012, he joined the WPI faculty as an assistant professor in the Robotics Engineering Program and Computer Science Department where he founded the Autonomous Robotic Collaboration (ARC) Lab, which focuses on motion planning, manipulation, and human-robot collaboration. His research focuses on creating algorithms that allow robots to interact with the world and collaborate efficiently with people.

dc.description.abstractRobotics is undergoing three transformations, which are changing our research focus and opening doors to new applications. The need for robotic manipulation in unstructured environments, human-robot collaborative systems, and handling soft materials is transforming the fundamental assumptions underlying our methods for manipulation planning and creating new opportunities for applications in service robotics, health care, and manufacturing. Berenson presents his team's contributions to these transformations, which include new algorithms that plan motion with multiple simultaneous constraints, manage sensor uncertainty in the planning process, model human motion in collaborative settings, and control manipulation of soft objects. He discusses the theory behind these approaches and show practical applications on real-world robots. He ends by identifying three frontiers that are emerging as a result of these transformations as well as prospects for their exploration.en_US
