The department is saddened by the passing of Dr. Adele Howe.
Research focus:
My approach to research emphasizes careful, hypothesis directed evaluation and recognizing applications that are well suited to solution by AI techniques, especially planning and search. It is critical to not just show that an algorithm can perform better than a predecessor, but to understand why it does and so motivate the next design. This approach has led me to explore applications as diverse as scheduling contacts with satellites for the Air Force to most recently designing a security agent that is tailored to the psychology of the home computer user.
