I'm a first-year Computer Science PhD at UC Berkeley, advised by Pieter Abbeel.

I recently graduated from Stanford University with a distinction in research.

During my masters, I was an intern in the Robotics team at Google Brain and an AI resident at Everyday Robots.

My research centers around robotic perception and manipulation. In particular, I'm interested in endowing robots with the flexible ability to learn from rich sources of data, like video demonstrations and natural language instructions.

Software

I actively contribute to MuJoCo, a popular and widely used physics simulator for robotics and control.

Some representative software I've developed over the years:
