About Me

My long-term research goal is to develop intelligent robots that can perform effectively with uncertain and limited knowledge of the world, be easily deployed in new environments, and require minimal human intervention during their operation. As such, I work at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, and computer vision to design robot perception systems that can model the uncertainty in their output while continuously learning new tasks from a few labeled examples.

I am currently an IVADO Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Mila-Quebec AI Institute. I am part of the Montreal Robotics and Embodied AI Lab (REAL) working with Professor Liam Paull.

 

Before that, I was a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS). I was advised by Professor Steven Waslander as a part of the Toronto Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory(TRAIL).
