I'm a third-year PhD student at the Humans-To-Robots Lab at Brown University, advised by Stefanie Tellex. I am visiting the Learning and Intelligent Systems Group at MIT (virtually). My research interests are in robot decision making under uncertainty, especially partial observability. I am also interested in improving robot decision making through natural language understanding.
Before my PhD studies, I graduated with M.S. and B.S. in computer science from the University of Washington with minor in math. I worked on mobile robot navigation and deep generative modeling for mobile robot semantic mapping using Sum-Product Networks, advised by Andrzej Pronobis and Rajesh P. N. Rao. Prior to that, I used a Myo armband to control a robotic arm advised by Vikash Kumar and Emo Todorov.
