Research Interests


Robotics, Human-Computer Interaction, Human-Robot Interaction, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Mental Health

I'm interested in developing techniques to lead a better future for humanity and greater good by combining methods from Robotics and Machine Learning. I'm also interested in creating platforms to offer purposeful leadership and define how humans should be interacting with breakthrough innovations of Human-Computer Interaction, Human-Robot Interaction and Artificial Intelligence for a sustainable future.


June 2021:

I am working as an X-Force Fellow in the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine under the U.S. Department of Defence. I am graciously sponsored by the National Security Innovation Network.

I am pursuing undergraduate research in Human-Centered Robotics Lab, where I'm developing a social robot to effectively measure and intervening in teen-stress living in high schools, and using the EMA (Ecological Momentary Assessment) technique. My advisors are Maya Cakmak, Elin Björling, and Patrícia Alves-Oliveira.

April 2021:

I am a graduate of the Google Computer Science Research Mentorship Program (CSRMP), Class of 2021! My mentor was Igor Mordatch.

Autumn 2020:

I served as a Teaching Assistant in the Direct Admit Seminar (CSE 190B) during Autumn 2020. I organized and led a seminar for first-year computer science students interested in getting involved in undergraduate research and pursuing research-based careers.

Summer 2020:

I interned at Cisco Systems, Inc., in Seattle, WA as a software engineering intern with the Cisco Webex Platform Services team during Summer 2020. I worked on the features of cloud collaboration web services of Webex Teams and Webex Meetings. I also participated in the Cisco College Intern Mentorship Program and the give back program via Global Citizen.
