About

Hi! I am a first-year PhD student at the University of Washington, advised by Byron Boots, studying robotics, machine learning, and optimal control. Broadly, I am interested in developing end-to-end intelligent systems that continuously learn from their environment, as well as robust control and planning in uncertain and dynamic environments. Previously, I completed my undergrad at Caltech and am fortunate to have worked with Yisong Yue and Anima Anandkumar at Caltech, and Pablo Moscato at the University of Newcastle.
