about me

I'm a second-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley. I work with Professor Pieter Abbeel and Professor Sergey Levine in the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab.

My research focuses on approaches to, algorithms for, and applications of learning perception and control for real-world robotic systems. My specific interests are currently centered around representation learning and model-based reinforcement learning methods.

During my time as an undergraduate at the same institution, I was a part of various activities involving education and music. I was a course instructor and teaching assistant for CS 61A as well as a teaching assistant for CS 188 and CS 189/289A. I served as the President of The Music Connection. I also sometimes played violin in the UC Berkeley Symphony Orchestra.
