Prior to this, I was a postdoc at Stanford AI Lab working with Fei-Fei Li and Silvio Savarese. I received MS in Computer Science and Ph.D. in Operations Research from the UC, Berkeley in 2016. I was advised by Ken Goldberg in the Automation Lab as a part of the Berkeley AI Research Lab (BAIR). I also worked closely with Pieter Abbeel, Alper Atamturk and UCSF Radiation Oncology.
My current research focuses on machine learning algorithms for perception and control in robotics. I develop algorithmic methods to enable efficient robot learning for long-term sequential tasks through Generalizable Autonomy. The principal focus of my research is to understand representations and algorithms to enable the efficiency and generality of learning for interaction in autonomous agents.
Research Interests: Robotics, Reinforcement Learning, Computer Vision and Optimal Control. I work on applications of autonomous manipulation in surgical, personal and warehouse robotics.
