I am a first-year PhD student at Columbia University advised by Carl Vondrick. I am interested in building machines that leverage multimodal signals (e.g. vision, vibration, audio) and natural transformations in the physical world to creatively perceive and interact with their environment. My research is supported by the Columbia Center of Artifical Intelligence & Technology (CAIT) & Amazon Science Ph.D. Fellowship.
I previously graduated from the University of Pennsylvania advised by Jianbo Shi, with a BA in Computer Science, and minors in Math, Computational Neuroscience, and Systems Eng. In my free time I play with art projects, make useless but beautiful datasets (see Reflections),read (my GoodReads), play piano, and sometimes, scuba dive.
