Andrew Schoen is a graduate student at the Department of Computer Sciences, University of Wisconsin–Madison. He received his B.S. in Biology and Psychology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and then worked for 3 years assisting in neuroscience research at the Center For Healthy Minds. That work developed his passion for Computer Science, so he returned to obtain a Masters in Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and is now continuing research with Dr. Bilge Mutlu in the People and Robots Lab studying Robot Programming and Human-Robot Teaming. He is working on a number of projects focused on easing the process for designing human-robot collaborations and robot behaviors.
