BIOGRAPHY
Dr. Andrew H. Fagg is an associate professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma. He holds a BS in Applied Mathematics/Computer Science from Carnegie-Mellon University, and a MS and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southern California. His research focuses on the computational issues surrounding the symbiotic relationships between humans and machines. In particular, he is interested in primate and robot learning of motor skills and task-oriented representations; reaching, grasping, and manipulation; brain-machine interfaces; and interactive art.
