I am an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) PhD student at MIT advised by Prof. Julie Shah. My interest lies in developing robots that are flexible and adaptable, with a focus on robotic manipulation. Previously, I received my master’s and bachelor’s degrees in EECS from MIT. While completing my master’s thesis, which was advised by Prof. Julie Shah, I worked for a year at human-in-the-loop robotics startup Tutor Intelligence.

When not with a robot, I can most likely be found with my cello, baking treats, swimming, or reading.
