Postdoctoral Fellow with the Learning Agents Research Group under the supervision of Dr. Peter Stone.

I am co-organizing a 2017 AAAI Spring Symposium titled Interactive Multi-Sensory Perception for Embodied Agents. If it sounds interesting and you want to participate, drop me an email!

I am currently teaching CS 309: Autonomous Intelligent Robotics (FRI-I) which aims to enable first year students to conduct scientific research in the area of robotics. Previous courses that I taught at UT include CS 378: Autonomous Intelligent Robotics (FRI-I) taught in the Spring of 2016 and its continuation, CS 378: Autonomous Intelligent Robotics (FRI-II) taught in the Fall of 2016. See here for an ever growing playlist of student project videos.

I am heavily involved in the Building-Wide Intelligence Project which aims to bring robots out of the labs and into human-inhabited environments.
