Stephanie Rosenthal has pursued her research interests in human interaction with intelligent systems, such as robots, since the age of 16. She continued to explore a variety of research areas including robotics, computer-supported collaborative work, and machine learning throughout college at Carnegie Mellon University, receiving a B.S. in Computer Science with a double major in Human-Computer Interaction with both university and department honors in 2007. Her Ph.D. thesis focuses on overcoming the sensing, actuation, and uncertainty limitations of devices, such as mobile phones and robots, by modeling the users of the devices to determine whether and when to ask those users for help. Stephanie has also been active in promoting high school students’ interest in computer science, giving talks at local schools and helping to start a weekly hands-on workshop on a variety of computer science topics.
