About Me

I am a first-year Ph.D. student at Princeton University, advised by Professor Olga Russakovsky. Currently, I am working at Machine Intelligence and Perception in Google Research.

When I was a master's student at Stanford, I researched under Professors Fei-Fei Li and Michael Bernstein in the intersection of computer vision and large scale crowdsourcing.

As an undergraduate at Stanford, I have had the pleasure of working with with Professor Oussama Khatib on robotics simulation and haptic teleoperation in contact. I also worked with Professor Allison Okamura on a novel haptic jamming interface that can dynamically change shape. I also completed a research internship at Oculus Research under Sean Keller.
