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.
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.
