Christopher Xie

I am a PhD student in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I am currently working with Dieter Fox. In the past, I have been fortunate to have worked with Emily Fox and Zaid Harchaoui. I am interested in the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, and robotics. I completed my undergraduate studies at University of California, Berkeley, in the EECS department.

I was graciously supported by a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship from 2016-2019.
