Curriculum Vitae

:wave: Thank you for stopping by!

I am Sachin Grover, a Ph.D. candidate advised by Prof. Subbarao Kambhampati. My Ph.D. is oriented towards designing Human-Aware AI techniques using Automated Task Planning for collaboration in Human-Robot teams.

I did my Masters at Arizona State University, advised by Prof. Kurt VanLehn, on learning human mental model while a student interact with an Intelligent Tutoring System. I completed my Bachelors at National Institute of Technology, Rourkela, India (NITR).

:point_right: Currently, I am looking for full-time opportunities in Research+Engineering roles.

Research Interest: Human-Aware AI, Human-AI collaboration, Automated Task Planning, Multi-Agent Systems.


My research focuses on designing human-aware techniques and systems through interaction, where the automated system collaborates with active human teammates. The interaction can be in the form of providing support or refining the human’s mental model using AI planning (Automated Task Planning) techniques or machine learning methods. Currently, I am interested in developing industrial solutions for human-aware systems using AI based insights. My work has been published in referreed journals (HCI, IEEE, Taylor & Francis etc.), and several peer reviewed conferences (AI & Education AIED, Naturalistic Decision Making NDM etc.) and workshops (Explainability and AI ICAPS XAIP, ML for Public Health NEURIPS MLPH) etc. List of my publications can be checked below.
