PhD Candidate


I am a PhD candidate at Mila and the Robotics and Embodied AI Lab, advised by Liam Paull. My research vision is to enable embodied agents to perceive, reason, and act intelligently. To achieve this, my work intertwines our understanding of the world (physics, robotics, vision, graphics) with deep learning machinery.

I am also an incoming postdoc at MIT CSAIL, starting early 2022, and working closely with Josh Tenenbaum and Antonio Torralba.

I’m fortunate to have closely worked with Florian Shkurti, Derek Nowrouzezahrai, Sanja Fidler, and other excellent researchers.

My research is supported by an NVIDIA graduate fellowship.

Pro-bono office hours

I commit 2 hours a week to mentor underrepresented groups in robotics, computer vision, and machine learning. If this is you, and you’d like to discuss research, grad school apps/advice, or anything else, please fill out this form.
