March 2020

Excited to share our work on viusal navigation among humans. The work was done in collaboration with Google Brain research.

We are organizing the 2nd workshop on safe and robust autonomy at RSS 2020. Check out our call for papers (due on 5 June, 2020).


February 2020

Check out our work on safe navigation among humans. We will present this work at ICRA 2020.

New paper on generating robust supervision for learning-based visual navigation using Hamilton-Jacobi reachability. We will present this work at L4DC 2020.


I am applying for faculty positions this Fall (research statement).
