I am a current Robotics Ph.D. Student at the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Machines at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
My research lies at the intersection of Human-Robot Interaction and Machine Learning. I develop algorithms so that artificial agents can better understand their human partners.
Previous to joining Georgia Tech, I received an M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering in 2018 and a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Aerospace Engineering in 2017.
