I am a PhD student in MIT's AeroAstro Department advised by Prof. Julie Shah with the Interactive Robotics Group. My research interests lie in enabling robots to act and react efficiently to humans in close-proximity interaction. I am currently exploring methods to leverage structure in repetitive tasks to allow robots to learn and adapt to individuals' tenancies, preferences, and abilities online.

I completed my Master's of Engineering with the MIT EECS department under Prof. Julie Shah (2022) and competed my BS with the MIT EECS department (2021). Outside of research, I enjoy hiking, cooking, and acting with local theater groups.
