I am a PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology studying computer science. I am advised by Irfan Essa and Dhruv Batra. I also have the pleasure of working closely with Devi Parkih. My research interests are primarily focused on computer vision and its applications to artificial intelligence. One of my long-term research goals is to train robots as “embodied agents” in simulated environments, due to challenges of training in the physical world, and then transfer them to reality
In the summer of 2019, I will be an intern at FAIR working with Manolis Savva and continuing my on-going collaboration with FRL. In the summer of 2018, I was a research intern at facebook Reality Labs (FRL) and facebook AI Research (FAIR) working with Julian Straub and Dhruv Batra.
As an undergraduate, I participated in a 3-2 engineering program with Juniata College and Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL). While I was at WUSTL, I worked with Yasu Furukawa (now at SFU). I spent a summer at Lehigh University and worked with Yinzhi Cao.

During Fall 2017, I worked on using PointNets to predict amodal 3D bounding boxes. I saw initially promising results for regressing bounding boxes coordinates. However, due to my desire to not use fixed anchors, the network had trouble determine which bounding boxes had an object.
