May 2020

I am honored to receive the Eli Jury Award from UC Berkeley, EECS for "outstanding achievement in the area of systems, communications, control, or signal processing."

Successfully defended my thesis at UC Berkeley! Thank you, Claire. Check out what I have been upto for the past 5 years [dissertation talk].


April 2020

Check out my talk on scaling Hamilton-Jacobi reachability analysis for robotics at IPAM.


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).

December 2019
