Hi! I am a Ph.D. student at the university of Washington advised by Dieter Fox and Abhishek Gupta. I’m also a research intern working with Vikash Kumar at Meta. My research interests are imitation learning and robot manipulation. I’m particularly interested in learning to generate diverse data for robots such that learning from minimal demonstrations is possible. Prior to my phd life, I did my master from Electrical Engineering Department at the Unviersity of Washington advised by Jenq-Neng Hwang and Imari Sato. I am also fortunate to have interned with many awesome mentors in the past at National Institute of Informatics (Tokyo), Microsoft Research (Redmond), NNAISENSE (Lugano), Nvidia Robotics Lab (Seattle) and Meta robotics lab (Pittsburgh).
