I am a PhD student at the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, working with Dieter Fox.
In the past, I have had the pleasure of interning at Google Research, NVIDIA Research, and Microsoft. I was graciously supported by a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship from 2016-2019. I completed my undergraduate studies at University of California, Berkeley, in the EECS department.
My interests span the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, and robotics. In particular, I am interested in investigating visual representations that enable robots to perform physical tasks such as object manipulation in unstructured and cluttered scenes.
I will be joining Facebook Reality Labs Research (London) in November 2021!
