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 past summers, I interned at and .


My research interests broadly lie in machine learning, computer vision and robotics. I am fortunate to have been working closely with many excellent researchers (see collaborators).
