MEMP Seminar Series:Victoria Nneji, PhD Candidate, Duke Robotics Program, MEMP15
Victoria Chibuogu Nneji, born in Lagos, Nigeria, studied Applied Mathematics at Columbia University in New York City and earned a master of Engineering Management from Duke University in her hometown of Durham, North Carolina. In 2017, Victoria became the first Ph.D. candidate of Duke's robotics program. Here, she works with Professor Missy Cummings and leads projects with NASA and the DOT on modeling remote operations centers for autonomous vehicle networks in rail, air, and surface transportation systems. Victoria hopes to make a positive difference in future mobility and logistics design decisions by strategizing how to thoughtfully integrate artificial intelligence into operations with human factors.
