Research Interest: I am interested in perception. I enjoy learning about how we complete the seemingly easy tasks we do every day, such as reaching to different objects. These tasks can cause developers and programmers headaches when trying to emulate in a robot or artificial agent. I am also interested in cybersecurity research. I think cybersecurity is a challenging, relevant problem that confronts people every day.
Career Aspirations: I want to work for a company and improve people’s experiences with their products. I hope to see my research findings applied to real-world problems.
Fun Fact: I like everything about art: making it, studying it, and looking at it!
Advice to younger students: Never doubt yourself and do not let fear keep you from doing something. You never know what you can do until you try it.
