I'm a computer scientist that works with robots. I'm really interested in combining planning with perception so that robots can gather information about the world. I recently defened my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania, under Vijay Kumar and Nathan Michael and am now at Google. During my PhD, I developed information-theoretic control policies for teams of robots that enabled them to localize targets and build 3D maps. See my publications page for more details and some cool videos.
I got my undergraduate and master's of engineering degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While there, I worked with Seth Teller in the Robots, Vision, and Sensor Networks Group and Daniela Rus in the Distributed Robotics Lab.
In 2011, I was fortunate enough to receive a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship as well as an honorable mention for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship.
