I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the Multi-modal Learning, Interaction and Perception Laboratory (MuLIP) at Tufts University. I am advised by Professor Jivko Sinapov. My research interests span neuro-symbolic AI, reinforcement learning, and robotics. I am currently working on a DARPA-funded project called SAIL-ON, and being co-advised by Professor Matthias Scheutz.
Prior to joining Tufts, I completed my Master's in C.S. at Washington State University under the supervision of Professor Matthew E. Taylor, where I worked in the field of computer vision and machine learning for agricultural robotics. I have also worked as a researcher at the CASAS lab under the supervision of Professor Diane J. Cook where I worked in the area of healthcare robotics.
My goal is to develop autonomous agents that can best respond to sudden and unknown situations in real-world environments. I dream of building robots that can help me with my daily chores and have the capability to learn from my day-to-day activities and get better over time.
