About Me

I am a Ph.D. student at the California Institute of Technology studying robotics, control,s and dynamics at the Advanced Mechanical Bipedal Experimental Robotics (AMBER) Lab. I am interested in robotic locomotion and control of hybrid systems. Additionally, I am interested in working at the intersection of control theory and machine learning for robots.

Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to take roles as a researcher, test and assembly engineer, design engineer, tutor, and mentor. I’ve worked at top engineering institutions such as the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Raytheon Intelligence & Space, Stanford University, Caltech, and the SETI Institute. Topics of my past  and current work include robotics, space exploration, and mechanical engineering research.
