I'm a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Columbia University. I'm fortunate to be advised by Professor Shuran Song and to be a member of the Columbia Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR) lab.

In my non-existent freetime, I take photos, train dogs, and care for my 20 plants. I'm a proud dog dad of Mo, an 9 year old Corgi - Border Collie mix, and Oliver, a 1 year old Border Collie.
