I am a PhD student at Mila and the Robotics and Embodied AI Lab, advised by Liam Paull. My research strives to develop embodied agents that can perceive, reason, and act intelligently. Central to my research is the idea that we should leverage our deep understanding of the rules of the world (physics, classical robotics/vision/graphics) to support modern deep learning machinery. I spend a fair bit of my time contributing to open-source software.

I am always interested to connect with people that share similar thoughts or research interests. Drop me a line at <my-twitter-handle> if that’s you. I also have open spots for interns with a strong background in my areas of interest (please fill out this form if you’d like to work with us at REAL and Mila).
