In Fall 2017, I will be joining Princeton University as a Ph.D. student in computer science.

At Stanford, I mainly worked with Professors Fei-Fei Li and Michael Bernstein in the unique intersection of computer vision and large scale crowdsourcing.

As an undergraduate, I have had the pleasure of working 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.
