I am an NSF Fellow and a PhD student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. I am a part of Dr. Edwin Olson's APRIL Robotics Laboratory, which investigates Autonomy, Perception, Robotics, Interfaces, and Learning. I have previously been associated with Dr. Walter Voit's Advanced Polymer Research Lab and Dr. Nicholas Gans' SeRViCE Lab. In my academic career, I have researched flexible bioelectronics, control systems, and robotic networking. Currently, my work focuses on multi-agent planning and coordination.

I am an alumnus of UT Dallas and the Eugene McDermott Scholars Program, a former contributor to the UTD Robot Chess Project, and a co-founder of RISE, an outreach organization that brings hands-on science and engineering demonstrations to elementary students in the Dallas area.
