Bio

I am a PhD student at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) working with Simon Lucey, and Laszlo Jeni at CI2CV Computer Vision Lab and Computational Behavior Lab. Previously, I finished my Masters at CMU under the guidance of Simon Lucey. Before that, I worked as a Research Assistant with Nathan Michael at Resilient Intelligent Systems Lab (RISLab).

Using my background in robotics, computer vision, and machine learning, I am interested in uncovering the causal reasoning behind every decision that we make that consistues human intelligence. Unconvering such causal artifacts of biological intelligence could be the key to developing artifically intelligent systems that can "think", "reason", and "imagine" for themselves. Causal intelligence also holds the key to solve the problems of Out-of-distribution (O.O.D.) generalization, lifelong learning via abstraction, and the problem of handling catastrophic forgetting, prevelant in modern machine learning methods. My goal is to create the intelligent mechanisms that have the potential to advancing scientific discovery and understanding the fundamental mechanisms of life.
