I am a fourth year PhD student in the Department of Computer Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin. My research interests are in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Neuroscience. Specifically, I am working on modeling and simulating human movement, and applying those models to create better moving robots. My adviser is Dana Ballard, co-director of the Virtual Reality Laboratory.
I have also completed the Master of Science program at The University of Southern California in Computer Science. My research at USC involved finding an asynchronous solution to optimize a distributed set of autonomous agents. This work was completed under the supervision of Milind Tambe.
