I am a 2nd year PhD student in Cockrell School of Engineering at UT Austin, advised by Prof. Ufuk Topcu and Prof. Sandeep Chinchali.
Prior to this, I earned my Master’s degree in Computer Science at UC Berkeley, advised by Prof. Pieter Abbeel; and my Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics.
My research interests include Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Computer Vision. I aim to build intelligent robot systems that are able to reason about the physical world and assist humans in complex real-life environments.
