I am a Masters student at the MIT media lab in the Personal Robots Group. I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelors degree in Computer Science specializing in artificial intelligence and networking. I enjoy playing with data and developing technologies that leverage data. My current research at MIT focuses on building a cognitive architecture for Robots like Tega incorporating inputs from speech and vision. Prior to this, I worked on wearable computing and algorithms to help artificially intelligent agents learn from human feedback. In summer 2016, I interned on the Philanthropy team at Palantir developing technologies to help farmers in the Philippines and Colombia. In the summer of 2015, I interned at Microsoft on the Identity Driven Machine Learning team building models to detect suspicious login activities.
Outside of research, I like to explore new places, food and adventure sports.
