BIO

I'm a soon-to-graduate PhD student at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory co-advised by Wojciech Matusik and Daniela Rus, developing tools to automate rigid and soft robot design. Prior to joining MIT, I received my M.Eng in Computer Science and my B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering Physics at Cornell University, where I briefly worked with Hod Lipson's group, and then spent two years working as a research engineer in the Asymmetric Operations Department at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (JHU/APL).

I work in the intersection of fabrication and robotics. I am creating tools to enable users to quickly design, program, and easily fabricate their own personal robots using data-driven tools. My toolset is full-stack, including developing fast, differentiable simulators, powerful optimization and learning algorithms for automated robot design, and novel digital fabrication techniques. I am strongly interested in democratizing fabrication, both in form and function, and computational creativity. My work falls in the intersection of computer graphics, machine learning, and robotics.

In summer 2015 I was an intern at Disney Research: Pittsburgh, working on projects in fabrication and interaction, and in 2016 I interned at Disney Research: Zürich. I am a recipient of the Unity3D Global Research Fellowship.
