About Me

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

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).
