I am a second-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). I am interested in using machine learning and vision-based methods for better planning, perception and control abilities in autonomous robots.

During my non-existent free time, I enjoy swimming, snowboarding, billiards, basketball, hiking, travelling, web-design and photography (I shoot with my Sony A7IV with the FE 25-105mm F/4 lens, FE 20mm F/1.8 lens or GoPro HERO9).

Highlights
