I'm a PhD student in EECS at UC Berkeley. I received my M.S. in Machine Learning from Carnegie Mellon University and B.S. in EECS from UC Berkeley.

In the past, I've worked on multi-agent collision avoidance, learning from demonstration, human behavior learning, optimal control, hybrid systems, and hierarchical planning in CMU Machine Learning Department and the Berkeley AI Research Lab.
