Bio. I’m currently interning 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 self-supervise and improve over time through their interaction with the physical world. I'm driven to build things that will have positive impact at scale.

Last summer, I interned at Nimble AI where I built the infrastructure for training and deploying various real-time grasping algorithms 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 ultrasonic transducers like a chemical nose and a touch screen.

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