Kevin Doherty

I'm a PhD student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the AeroAstro department, as part of the MIT/WHOI Joint Program.

I am a member of the WHOI Advanced Robotics and Perception (WARP) Lab, where I'm advised by Yogi Girdhar. At MIT, I am in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), where I'm in the Robust Robotics Group under Nicholas Roy.

My research lies at the intersection of machine learning and autonomous robotics, particularly in areas like unsupervised learning, distributed learning, and human-robot interaction for applications like underwater exploration.

Previously I was an undergraduate student at Stevens Institute of Technology where I did research on robot mapping in the Robust Field Autonomy Lab under Brendan Englot.
