Hello. I'm a PhD student at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. I'm currently a member of the Robots Perceiving and Doing Lab (RPAD), where I am advised by Prof. Dave Held. My general research interests are at the intersection of perception and control. Specifically, I center on the control of robotic systems through model-based machine learning to study how machines can be given greater, safer autonomy.

During my undergraduate study, I was advised by Sergey Levine and mentored by Nick Rhinehart at the Robotic AI & Learning Lab (RAIL) in UC Berkeley.
