I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Fall 2020, advised by Dr. Steven M. LaValle. I am now a Postdoc in Dr. Kirstin Petersen’s Collective Embodied Intelligence Lab in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Cornell University.

My CV is here. You can see some of my current projects on Google Scholar and my github.
