I am a member of the WHOI Advanced Robotics and Perception (WARP) Lab, where I'm advised by Yogi Girdhar. At MIT, I am in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), where I'm in the Robust Robotics Group under Nicholas Roy.
My research lies at the intersection of machine learning and autonomous robotics, particularly in areas like unsupervised and distributed learning and their use in robot exploration.
