Currently, I am a METEOR Post-Doctoral Fellow at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. I work with REALM and the Robust Robotics

Previously, I was a student at the University of Michigan's Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, where I was advised by Prof. Necmiye Ozay and worked in an area called Correct-By-Construction Control. Outside of research I enjoy thinking about ways that cities can be improved, riding my bike, writing fiction, cooking and more!

Feel free to reach out to me! I am available here:
