San Diego, Calif., Nov. 6, 2019--Computer science professor Laurel Riek is the lead researcher on $2.3 million in new grants from the National Science Foundation to investigate how intelligent, personalized robots can be used to support neurorehabilitation for adults with mild cognitive impairment and adults recuperating from a stroke.

Riek directs the Healthcare Robotics Lab at the University of California San Diego, focusing on human-robot teaming, computer vision and healthcare engineering. Her team works on building systems able to sense, learn from, and adapt to people. Her research has applications in safety-critical, uncertain environments, including hospitals, homes, and work sites.
