I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin, and the director of the Robot Perception and Learning Lab. I am also a senior research scientist at NVIDIA Research.
My goal is to build intelligent algorithms for robots and embodied agents that reason about and interact with the real world. My research lies at the intersection of robotics, computer vision, and machine learning. I focus on developing methods and mechanisms of perception and control to achieve general-purpose robot autonomy.
