Lauren Hinkle


I'm a fifth year graduate student in computer science at the University of Michigan. My research interests are in artificial intelligence, computer vision, robotics, and human-robot interaction. I'm particularly interested in how robots can interact with their environment and with people to gain an understanding of the world around them. I work with Prof. Edwin Olson in the APRIL Robotics Lab.

I did my undergraduate work at Colorado College, where I double majored in computer science and physics. During my time at CC I worked as a peer tutor at the Quantitative Reasoning Center, attended an NSF-funded REU program at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, did research at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs with Jugal Kalita, and generally enjoyed living near mountains and being able to hike, camp, and run long distances in a beautiful area.
