I am a Ph.D. student working under the supervision of Dr. Laurel Riek at UC San Diego in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. My research explores selective attention for robots, as an approach to allow robots to understand the world more efficiently and more robustly. More specifically, my work is in the computer vision aspect of attention (i.e. saliency and object detection).

Prior to my doctoral studies at UCSD, I earned my M.S. in Electrical Engineering at California Polytechnic State University, where my focus was in the design and implementation of mechatronic systems.
