Dylan Hadfield-Menell

Dylan Hadfield-Menell will join the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science as an Assistant Professor in July. Hadfield-Menell received his PhD in Computer Science from UC-Berkeley, and his MS and BS (both in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering) from MIT. His research focuses on the value alignment problem in artificial intelligence, and aims to help create algorithms that pursue the intended goals of their users. He is also interested in work that bridges the gap between AI theory and practical robotics, and the problem of integrated task and motion planning. Hadfield-Menell is an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Recipient and a Berkeley Fellow, with multiple conference papers published in the AAAI/ACM Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society and the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human-Robot Interaction, among others. He was the technical lead on The Future Starts Here Exhibit for the Victoria and Albert Museum, and has interned at Facebook and Microsoft.
