Zackory Erickskon

I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I lead the Robotic Caregiving and Human Interaction (RCHI) Lab. My research explores intelligent physical human-robot interaction, with applications in healthcare robotics.

Previously, I received my PhD in Robotics at Georgia Tech advised by Charlie Kemp.

Note for Fall 2022 applicants: I will likely be looking for 1 to 2 graduate students.
