That is me at Lake Tahoe

I am a Ph.D student in Robotics and AI at University of California, Berkeley since 2011.
My home department is Operations Research, and I am also pursuing a degree in Computer Science.

I am working at the Berkeley Lab for Automation Science and Engineering at UC Berkeley where I am being advised by Ken Goldberg.
I also work closely with Pieter Abbeel and his group. Complete list of collaborators.

Research Interests: Optimization (Mixed Integer, Nonlinear), Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence in Robotics & Healthcare Applications.

Primarily, I work in radiation treatment planning and delivery for cancer. We use latest optimization algorithms for creating clinically safe radiaction distributions and devise novel delivery methods like custom 3D printed implants.

One of my long term goal would be to make robots as easy to program and operate as a car. I am also working on skill learning with applications to surgical robotics.


Recent Research

Recently I have been working on implementing semi-autonomous solutions for improving brachytherapy quality and reduce dependence on physician skill.
