Welcome to my website!

I’m a PhD candidate at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) and the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. I work with Prof. Sertac Karaman in the Autonomy and Embedded Robotics Accelerated (AERA) group.

My research interests are in robotics, motion planning, and control. I am particularly interested in leveraging methods from robust control theory and differential games to safely bring fast and highly-maneuverable robots out of research labs and into the real world.
