About Me

I am an M.S. student in Robotics at the Carnegie Mellon Univeristy Robotics Institute. I work with Prof. Zac Manchester as a member of the Robotic Exploration Lab.

Previously, I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech, where I was advised by Prof. Ye Zhao and Prof. Matthew Gombolay. My undergraduate research focused on trajectory optmization and multi-agent reinforcement learning.

In my free time, I love to cook, golf, hike, and travel, among many other things.

Research

I am broadly interested in intelligent robot behavior and decision making. My research goal is to push robotic systems in the laboratories into the real world so they can better integrate into our daily lives and explore harsh environments.

I currently work on optimization and control through contact with an application to legged robots.
