I am a PhD student in ECE at the University of Waterloo, advised by Stephen L. Smith and part of the Autonomous Systems Lab. My research interests lie in estimation, optimization, and machine learning with a focus on applications in robotics.
I received my bachelor's with distinction in ECE and master's in SYDE from the University of Waterloo. During my master's, I worked with Bryan Tripp and Graham Taylor on understanding correlated variability in biological and artificial neural networks. I also had the pleasure of working with Hamid Tizhoosh and Dana Kulic during my bachelor's. I interned at Preferred Networks in Tokyo in 2018, Latent Logic (now Waymo) in Oxford in 2017, and Amazon Search in Palo Alto in 2016.
