Ph.D. in Robotics
2019 - Present
B.S. Computer Engineering
2014 - 2019
I am a Robotics Ph.D. student at the Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Dhruv Batra and Sonia Chernova. 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. My research is supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, Apple Scholars in AI/ML PhD Fellowship, Adobe Research Fellowship, and Google Women Techmakers Scholarship.
I am currently an intern at Apple, working with Walter Talbot, Miguel Angel Bautista, Alex Toshev, and Josh Susskind. 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. In the summer of 2020, I was an intern at FAIR, working with Akshara Rai.
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.
