Hello world! You've reached the homepage of Tathagata Chakraborti. I am a Ph.D. student in Dr. Subbarao Kambhampati's research group Yochan at Arizona State University. My research is in the field of Artificial Intelligence, particularly in decision-making with humans in the loop - e.g. challenges in human-aware planning for human-robot cohabitation and collaboration, and proactive decision support.

I also became a research staff member in IBM Research's AI Composition Lab in Cambridge (MA) starting June 2018.
