About

I am a 5th-year Ph.D student at Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR), Johns Hopkins University. My advisor is Prof. Gregory Chirikjian. I have also worked with Prof. Gregory Hager and Prof. Russ Taylor. Previously, I obtained a M.S.E in Robotics from Johns Hopkins University in 2019.

My primary research interests are on robot perception, robot learning, and robot manipulation.
