Ph.D., Robotics 2024 (Expected)
B.S., Computer Engineering
Magna Cum Laude 2019
I am a 4th year Robotics Ph.D. student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Dhruv Batra and Sonia Chernova, and work closely with Devi Parikh. I am interested in working at the intersection of machine learning and robotics. My long-term research goal is to develop robots that are scalable, robust and capable of working in complex, real world environments.
In the summer of 2022, I was a student researcher at Google, working with Jie Tan, Wenhao Yu, and Tingnan Zhang. In the summer of 2021, I was an intern at at NVIDIA, working with Clemens Eppner, Ankur Handa, and Dieter Fox on skill learning for robot manipulation. In the summer of 2020, I was an intern at Facebook AI Research, working with Akshara Rai on learning dynamics aware navigation policies for multiple robot embodiments.
As an undergrad, I worked in the Robotics and Intelligent Vehicles Research (RIVeR) lab at Northeastern University with Taskin Padir. During my time there, I competed at the 2019 RoboCup@Home competition in Sydney, Australia and the 2018 World Robot Summit in Tokyo, Japan.
