About Me

Connor Yates Headshot

I am a PhD student at Oregon State University, studying Robotics in the Autonomous Agents and Distributed Intelligence (AADI) laboratory. I am interested in how robots in teams can infer the intent of other robots and leverage that to learn to coordinate faster. I also research agent-centric reinforcement learning utilizing multiple reward signals.

Robotics at OSU strives to be a collaborative envrionment. If you are interested in the program, or in joinig us, check out the CoRIS Institiute website at

I am an avid proponent of open source programs and hardware, and have several old computers and Raspberry Pi’s running variants of Linux. Someday I'll put them to good use... In my spare time, I like to bake excessive amounts of cookies and try to finish all the projects I start.
