I’m a PhD candidate at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences department at UC Berkeley advised by Professor Ron Fearing in the Biomimetic Millisystems Lab. I'm also affiliated with the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience headed by Professor Bruno Olshausen.
I'm interested in the problem of autonomous robot navigation, which draws me to the fields of computational biology, active perception, computational neuroscience, and adaptive control.
I'm currently working on robust indoor navigation of unsteady robots using optical flow and on learning control policies for efficient locomotion of legged robots over rough terrain. This last project is a collaboration with Professor Pieter Abbeel.
