Josh Pachter is a senior at the University of Rochester studying Computer Science and Philosophy. His key research interests center around robotics and machine ethics, with a focus in mitigating bias in morally consequential autonomous systems. In the past, Josh has worked at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, where he helped create intuitive control systems for a soft robotic glove to assist patients with an impaired ability to grip. He has also done research at the University of Rochester Human-Computer Interaction Lab where he worked on testing and optimizing a virtual agent that aims to help improve the conversational skills of its users. Next year, Josh will be working at Amazon as a Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA before pursuing graduate school in a few years’ time.
