Hi, I am a PhD student with Prof. Dave Held at the CMU Robotics Institute. I am interested in research on robotic perception and manipulation. I am supported by a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Prior to starting a PhD, I worked on human-robot interaction with Prof. Maya Cakmak at UW and Prof. Brian Scassellati at Yale.
