I am a post-doctoral associate in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) working with Russ Tedrake.

My research focuses on developing new computer vision, optimization, robotics, and system theory that utilizes data from cheap, ubiquitous sensing technologies to automate diagnostic and rehabilitative tasks. My research contributes to four fundamental themes:

  • robust estimation from high–dimensional noisy sensor measurements,

  • dynamical system identification,

  • development of computationally tractable measures to predict pathologies, and

  • constructing techniques to efficiently deliver therapeutic information.

Prior to beginning my position at MIT in October 2012, I graduated Highest Honors with a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and an Honors Degree in Physics in 2006, an MS degree in Electrical Engineering in May 2009, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering working with Ruzena Bajcsy in December 2012 all from the University of California, Berkeley.
