Hi! I am Aakash Yadav (legal: Aakash), a second-year Ph.D. student in the Neuroergonomics Lab at Texas A&M University. My research interests span robotics, human-robot interaction, human factors, cognition, neuroergonomics, and affective computing. I work towards understanding human-robot teaming to improve teaming, system performance, and safety.
I received my bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Tirupati. Previously, I have worked on optimizing thermoelectric efficiency, neural architecture search for robotics, and monocular SLAM.
I maintain a list of my publications and projects under the research tab. The best way to reach me is via email or Twitter. If you like my work, please consider supporting.
