Theresa Law Joins Bard College Faculty as Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the Division of Science, Mathematics, and Computing
“Bard has been so welcoming. I’m excited to work at an institution that respects and celebrates interdisciplinary collaboration,” says Law. “I can’t wait to dig into new ideas with the creative minds at Bard—both students and faculty.”
Theresa Law (she/hers) graduated with a BA in Cognitive Science from Vassar College in 2018, and is set to graduate with her PhD in Computer Science and Cognitive Science from Tufts University in summer 2023. Her research is in human-robot interaction. At the highest level, she explores the question “how can we investigate concepts such as mind, agency, intelligence, and consciousness through building and interacting with artificial agents?” Her work includes projects about how we conceptualize and evaluate robots, perceive and react to robot behavior, and considerations of the role of robots in our society. She currently lives in Boston with her fiancé and their two cats.
