I am a computer scientist working at the intersection of machine learning and robotics. I explore how to design and train neural networks to improve the effectiveness and robustness of robotic systems that interact with humans, with the ultimate goal of making robotic platforms more useful in the real world. Currently I am a PhD student at Yale University in robotics and a member of the Interactive Machines Group advised by Marynel Vázquez. Previously, I have done research at Stanford University in the Stanford Vision and Learning Lab under Silvio Savarese and have worked on machine learning and data engineering at Sequoia. For fun, I enjoy designing hardware and embedded systems programming.
