I am a Ph.D student in Robotics and AI at University of California, Berkeley since 2011. My home department is Industrial Engineering and Operations Research.
I am working at the Berkeley Lab for Automation Science and Engineering at UC Berkeley where I am being advised by Prof. Ken Goldberg. I also work closely with Prof. Pieter Abbeel and his group.
Research Interests: Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Planning and Perception for deformable objects.
Learning and Vision are closely entwined with my work.
Currently I am working on autonomy in surgical robotics with Raven-II and design of brachytherapy implants and guides for improved cancer treatment.
Recently I have been working on implementing semi-autonomous solutions for improving brachytherapy quality and reduce dependence on physician skill.
