Hello! I am a first-year PhD student in the CILVR lab at NYU Courant working with Mengye Ren. My research goal is to advance the visual perception capabilities of AI agents to enable them to adeptly operate in real-world settings. I am currently exploring the following research directions:
- Scaling to real-world complexity by using unstructured visual data
- Learning spatiotemporal concepts from video and 3D data
- Improving adaptability by integrating interaction with perception
More broadly, I am interested in self-supervised learning, transfer learning, and computer vision.
Previously, I worked on the systematic equities research team at The Voleon Group as a machine learning engineer.
I completed my bachelor's and master's in computer science at the University of Michigan.
There, I was fortunate to work with Honglak Lee on reinforcement learning and representation learning, and Michael P. Wellman on multi-agent systems.
