Hello there

Welcome to my home page. I'm a postdoc at the Learning and Intelligent Systems group at MIT CSAIL, working with Professors Leslie Pack Kaelbling and Tomas Lozano-Perez. I recently completed my PhD at the Autonomous Learning Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Amherst under the supervision of Professor Andy Barto.

My research aims to build intelligent, autonomous, general-purpose robots capable of completing a wide variety of tasks in environments that are unstructured and partially specified. My work focuses on understanding how to build hierarchical robot controllers that can construct and execute long-horizon plans in unknown or semi-specified environments. I develop and apply techniques from machine learning, reinforcement learning, optimal control and planning to construct well-grounded hierarchies that result in fast planning for common cases, and are robust to uncertainty at every level of control.

For more details on my existing work and future plans, please see my research, publications, and thesis pages.
