Dole’s current research focuses on two separate psychological issues in human-robot interaction: what kinds of identities best enable robots to aid dependents in search-and-rescue situations, and how people’s implicit stereotypes about robots can be misattributed to humans. His other areas of interest include nonverbal behavior, experiment design, and early modern intellectual history.
Dole received his B.S. in Psychology from the University of Washington in 2010, where he studied under Peter H. Kahn in the Human Interaction with Nature and Technological Systems (HINTS) Lab. From 2010 until late 2013 he was a member of Stanford’s Communication between Humans and Interactive Media (CHIMe) Lab, supervised by the late Clifford I. Nass.
