I'm a Research Scientist at Google Brain. Recently I finished my PhD in Computer Science at MIT with Russ Tedrake in the Robot Locomotion Group within CSAIL.

For the summer of 2018 I interned at Facebook Reality Labs. For 2015-2017 I was one of the lead software developers for the planning and control systems on our MIT-Draper team for the DARPA FLA (Fast Lightweight Autonomy) program.
