I am currently a master student in computer science at Georgia Institute of Technology. Previously, I received B.S. degrees with highest honor from Georgia Tech where I studied both Computer Science (Theory-Intelligence threads) and Electrical Engineering with a minor in economics.


In 2017, I spent a great summer at as a robotics engineering intern. I will be interning at in Summer 2018.


My primary research interests are in the areas of 1) deep learning and 2) statistical machine learning with applications in computer vision and robotics. I am fortunate to have been working closely with many excellent researchers and professors (see collaborators).
