... She has published extensively in books, magazines, and journals on a wide range of topics, including autonomous robots, planetary microrovers, legged locomotion, fault-tolerant behavior, visual attention, affective speech recognition, humanoid robotics, computational models of emotion and motivation, expressive speech synthesis, facial animation, behavior arbitration, social interaction between humans and robots, and learning. She has coauthored a graduate text on embodied intelligence and has authored another book, Designing Sociable Robots, from MIT Press.

... in analytical chemistry from the University of Massachusetts and has been principal investigator on nearly two dozen research programs in the areas of field analytical chemistry instrumentation, detection of chemicals of concern to human health, sensor development, geochemistry/ geophysics, in situ sampling and measurement techniques, remote fiber-optic sensing, laser spectroscopy, and miniature devices. Among his achievements are the invention of various Raman, fluorescence, absorbance, and refractive index fiber-optic probes, a miniature fluorescence sensor, and a unique Raman 49 spectrograph.

... He is the director of Carnegie Mellon's Field Robotics Center, which he founded in 1986, and cofounder and chief scientist of Re6Zone Robotics. His research centers on walkers for planetary exploration, mobile robots in unpredictable field environments such as work sites and natural terrain; computer architectures to control mobile robots; modeling and planning for nonrepetitive tasks; SAFE ON MARS complex problems of objective sensing in random or dynamic environments; and integration of complete robot systems.
