Prior to coming to Northeastern, I was (briefly) an Assistant Professor in the CSE Department at SUNY Buffalo. Prior to that, I was a Research Scientist at MIT in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and a technical lead with the Robonaut 2 project at NASA Johnson Space Center.

Research Interests

I am interested in robotics and machine learning with a focus on perception, planning, and control in uncertain environments. I am particularly interested in applications to robot manipulation.
