I am a PhD candidate in computer science (robotics) at the University of Southern California (USC), advised by Prof. Gaurav Sukhatme. Broadly, I work on combining planning algorithms with learning to achieve greater autonomy for robots, with experience in object manipulation, control theory, and deep reinforcement learning.
