I am a 4th year PhD student in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University. My advisor is Prof. Ross Knepper. My current research interests lie in the areas of human-robot interaction and motion planning. I am particularly interested in the design of algorithms that will enable robots to seamlessly and smoothly navigate crowded pedestrian environments. I am also a member of the OpenBionics Initiative working on creating affordable robotic and prosthetic hands. In the past I have also worked on robotic grasping and manipulation.
