My research focuses on robot learning, with interests including computer graphics and animation, theoretical computer science, causal inference, and neuroscience.

I will be starting my Ph.D. in Computer Science at Columbia University as a Dean's Fellow in Fall 2021. I'm fortunate to be advised by Professor Shuran Song.

In my non-existent freetime, I take photos, train dogs, and care for my 20 plants. I'm a proud dog dad of Mo, an 8 year old Corgi - Border Collie mix, and Oliver, a 3 month old Border Collie.
