I am a Research Scientist in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I work in SPARKlab with Prof. Luca Carlone. My research interests are in safe robot perception, 3D scene understanding, and networked autonomy. Check out my recent talks.
I was a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT, from 2020-2022. In 2020, I received a Ph.D. in the field of Networked Autonomy, from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. During this time, I worked with Prof. Eytan Modiano and Prof. Sertac Karaman in the Laboratory of Information and Decision Systems (LIDS). My work received ACM MobiHoc 2018 Best Paper Award. (see Bio).
