Short Biography

I'm currently a Ph.D. student in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University, advised by Professor Robert Platt.

My work is in the field of perception and robotics. In particular, I'm focussing on perception and active selection for robotic grasping and manipulation.

I started my PhD at the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University at Buffalo.

Research Interests

Present: Active selection, perception for robotics, probabilistic robotics, simulation based planning.

Past: Game theory, fairness in multi-agent systems.
