Bio. I’m currently spending time at Google Brain Robotics working at the intersection of robotic perception and manipulation. My research centers around Deep Learning and its applications to Robotics and Computer Vision. In particular, I'm interested in creating machines that can intelligently interact with the physical world and improve through self-supervision. I'm driven to build things that will have positive impact at scale.

Last summer, I interned at Nimble AI where I built and deployed a real-time, generative grasping algorithm for suction and parallel-jaw grasping. Before that, I was a visiting researcher in the Khuri-Yakub Ultrasonics Group at Stanford University, applying machine learning to enhance a chemical nose, an ultrasonic touch screen and a flow meter.

Outside of work I enjoy contributing to open source and blogging.
