About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate working with Anca Dragan and Claire Tomlin. I am broadly interested in the intersection of robotics, control theory, machine learning, and human-robot interaction. Much of my research to date has been on developing robust human motion prediction schemes and designing safe but efficient robot motion planners. At Berkeley, I get to collaborate with some amazing people in the InterACT Lab and the Hybrid Systems Lab. I am graciously supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
