About

I am a fifth year Ph.D. student advised by Professor Sven Koenig. I also work with Dr. Satish Kumar. Before joining USC, I finished my M.Sc. degree in Reasoning and Learning Lab, McGill University, advised by Professor Joelle Pineau.

 

My interests are mainly in artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning. Specifically, I am interested in topics on automated planning, multi-agent/robot systems, spatio-temporal and constraint reasoning, and applications of probabilistic methods and other topics related to graphs, combinatorial optimization, and algorithms.
