Hi, I am a PhD student in Robotics working with Prof. Dave Held at the CMU Robotics Institute. My research interests lie in robot learning and human-robot interaction.
I graduated from Yale in 2015 with bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Economics. As an undergraduate, I assisted Brian Scassellati's research at the Social Robotics Lab, resulting in second-author publications in HRI 2016 and ICRA 2016. My senior thesis on robotic perception of human gestures was awarded the 2015 Computer Science Research Prize.
In my spare time, I read/listen to books, practice cooking, participate in athletic events like Tough Mudder with friends, and travel with a moleskine so I can sketch the sights.
