“People who are really serious about software should make their own hardware.” - Alan Kay
I am a graduate student at ETH Zurich, advised by Marco Hutter. My research is focused on high-level reasoning and planning for mobile manipulation. I also closely collaborate with Animesh Garg at the University of Toronto.
Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work on various robotic systems with some amazing groups. Most of my time during my undergraduate studies was spent developing autonomous underwater vehicles and co-founding the institute’s student team. During the summer of 2017, I worked with Abhinav Valada and Wolfram Burgard at the University of Freiburg, Germany on building autonomous aerial systems for urban search and rescue. My internship at NNAISENSE involved safe-grasping of objects using manipulators.

I am primarily interested in decision-making and control for the operation of robots in human environments. These days, my efforts are focused on designing perception-based systems for contact-rich manipulation tasks, such as articulated object interaction and in-hand manipulation. Other areas of interest include hierarchical reinforcement learning, optimal control, and 3D vision.
