About me

Howdy!

I am currently a Master’s student with Sidd Srinivasa in the Personal Robotics Lab. I also work with Emo Todorov and his students in the Movement Control Laboratory. I am primarily interested in developing algorithms that enable intelligent machines to acquire general notions of intelligence in order to robustly solve complex and temporally-extended tasks in real-world settings. I’ve previously interned at NASA JPL Robotics, NASA Glenn Research Center, and Blue Origin.

When I am not tinkering with robots, I can usually be found up in the mountains skiing or climbing, camping with friends and family, planning the next adventure, or reading the latest book my sister gave me. I also love to explore new cultures and spent well over a year living in South America.

It is my hope that as an researcher and problem solver that I can give back to all the communities that have given me so much.
