About Me

I am currently working as a software engineer at Apple in the Special Projects Group (SPG).

Before joining the industry, I completed my PhD from the University of Illinois, where I was advised by Prof. Naira Hovakimyan. Broadly, my research was at the intersection of robotics, control theory, and machine learning, where I focused on safe motion planning for robots under uncertainty. For a deeper overview of my work during the PhD, head over to the research page. While at UIUC, I also spent a few summers working outside of academia towards robotics related problems at Facebook Reality Labs, Occipital, and Qualcomm.
