My long-term goal is to build robots that continually use knowledge gained during their lifespan to improve their performance and learn new tasks with human-like efficiency. As such, I work at the intersection of machine learning, robotics, and computer vision to develop intelligent robot systems with theoretically-founded lifelong learning capabilities.

Currently, I am a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS). I work under the supervision of Professor Steven Waslander as a part of the Toronto Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory(TRAIL).
