I am a 1st year PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania. My research interests are focused around robotics, computer vision, and machine learning. I am a member of the GRASP lab and I am advised by Professor Kostas Daniilidis. I earned my Masters of Robotics in 2019 from the University of Pennsylvania.

Before coming to UPenn, I worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. I completed my undergraduate thesis at University of Massachusetts Amherst under Professor Roderic A. Grupen.
