I am a PhD student at USC working with Prof. Gaurav Sukhatme. In my research I focus on probabilistic state estimation, active perception and control generation for various applications in robotics. More specifically, I am involved in the interactive perception initiative, where we use a robot’s manipulation capabilities to gain the most useful perceptual information to model the world and inform intelligent decision making. I have had opportunities to evaluate my research ideas on many different platforms including quadrotors, humanoid robots and robotic arms.
