Who am I?
I am a second year Ph.D. student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University who is co-advised by Sidd Srinivasa and Nancy Pollard. My research focuses on developing robotic manipulation algorithms that are robust to clutter and uncertainty. In particular, I am interested in using real-time sensor feedback—such as that provided by tactile sensors—to make closed-loop manipulation primitives that are robust to uncertainty.
I am a member of the Personal Robotics Lab and am currently collaborating with the Robonaut team at NASA's Johnson Space Center through my NSTRF fellowship. Previously, I was a member of the CMU/NREC team for the DARPA Autonomous Robotic Manipulation Software (ARM-S) competition. On the ARM-S project, I worked on using a bimanual robotic manipulator to complete complex, multi-stage tasks such as changing a tire or cutting a wire.
As an undergraduate, I double majored in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science at Rutgers University. As an undergraduate, I was heavily involved in Rutgers University's Vex Robotics Competition and Intelligent Ground Vehicle Competition teams through my leadership of the IEEE Student Branch.
