I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT and a member of the Interactive Robotics Group in CSAIL. My research lies in the field of human-aware AI and intelligent decision support, with a vision of creating systems that can interact naturally and intuitively with a team of human users to solve complex planning problems. I am a NSF GRFP fellow.

I completed by Masters thesis at MIT (2015), where I developed an intelligent agent that can monitor human team planning and infer whether there is consensus. Prior to my graduate studies at MIT, I received a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (2012) where I developed micro aerial vehicles that can autonomously perch onto a human hand.
