I am a first year PhD student in CSE at University of Washington co-advised by Maya Cakmak and Dieter Fox. My general research interests lie in motion planning, human-robot interaction and machine learning. More specifically, I am interested in planning in high-dimensional spaces and using learning techniques to scale planning to be more efficient in these spaces. I am also interested in the intersection between planning, human-robot interaction and machine learning.

I received my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Information Systems from Carnegie Mellon University. At CMU I was an undergraduate researcher in the Search-Based Planning Lab, where I was advised by Professor Maxim Likhachev. Previously, I was an undergraduate researcher in the Personal Robotics Lab where I was advised by Professor Siddhartha Srinivasa.
