Research Interests

Dr. Ankit Agrawal is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Saint Louis University. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from University of Notre Dame, Indiana in 2022. Ankit works at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction and Autonomous Systems, where he uses human-centered design techniques to design, build, and study interactive systems in order to improve human interactions with complex autonomous systems. His research aims to develop intelligent robots or autonomous systems that can act alongside humans as effective team members. His research interests include Human-Computer Interaction, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Software Engineering.
