Andrew Fagg

Associate Professor, Computer Science (CBN Associate) Devon Energy Hall 243 405-325-8606 Ph.D., Computer Science - University of Southern California, 1996


Dr. Fagg works in the areas of machine learning, robotics, computational neuroscience and embedded systems. In particular, he is interested in primate and robot learning of motor skills and task-oriented representations; reaching, grasping, and manipulation; and brain-machine interfaces for prosthesis control.
