Headshot of Micah Carroll from the shoulders up smiling.

I’m a fourth year Artificial Intelligence PhD student at Berkeley advised by Anca Dragan and Stuart Russell within BAIR and CHAI. I’m thankful to be supported by the NSF Fellowship.

I’m interested in humans’ preference, value, and belief changes, and how they may be affected by interactions with AI systems. I’ve studied this both in generality (with the language of DR-MDPs), and more specifically in the context of recommender systems, investigating how the choice of algorithm might affect us users. I’m probably best known for my work on human-AI collaboration, and developing the Overcooked-AI benchmark.

Before immigrating to the US, I grew up in the amazingly chaotic city of Livorno 🇮🇹 - visit if you get the chance!
