I am a fourth-year PhD student in Computer Science at Columbia University, co-advised by Professor Matei Ciocarlie and Professor Shuran Song. I received a Bachelor's degree from Edinburgh. I also work closely with Dinesh Jayaraman and Nikolai Matni at University of Pennsylvania. Prior to joining Columbia, I also spent some time at MIT, with Leslie Pack Kaelbling and Tomás Lozano-Pérez (2018); Columbia with Peter Allen (2018-2019). My research interest is at the intersection of robotics, machine learning and computer vision.

Mentoring

I am always interested in mentoring highly-motivated undergrads/masters. If you are at Columbia (preferred) and want to discuss project ideas/research opportunities, please feel free to shoot me an email.

I currently have the luck to work with: Dongixao Yang, Luke Hsu, Pedro Leandro La Rotta, Zihan Guo, Yolanda Zhu, Runsheng Wang, Yuan Qing.

Students that I have mentored in the past: Han Lin (now CS PhD at UNC), Yinsen Jia (now EE PhD at Duke), Wenxi Chen (now ME PhD at Purdue), Patrick Meng (now CS PhD at Rutgers).
