Undergraduate Alumni
I am currently a computer science PhD student at the University of Washington in Seattle. Previously, I was an undergraduate student at UT Austin (BSA 2018), where I worked on transfer learning and service robots with the Building Wide Intelligence project and helped students in the Autonomous Intelligent Robotics Freshman Research stream. I also participated in UT's RoboCup@Home team, Austin Villa@Home. My research was variously supervised by Matteo Leonetti, Jivko Sinapov, Justin Hart, and Peter Stone.
