I am a PhD student at MIT, advised by Prof. Julie Shah. I am working in the Interactive Robotics Group. My research goal is to enable robots to intelligently manipulate deformable objects and collaborate with humans.

Previously, I obtained my M.S. degree in Robotics at the Robotics Institute, CMU. I was a research assistant in the Personal Robotics Lab (now at UW), co-advised by Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa and Prof. Stephanie Rosenthal. I also worked with Prof. Katia Sycara in summer 2017. I obtained my B.S. degrees in Computer Science and Psychology from Penn State.
