Yale University

I am currently a PhD Student in Robotics (Mechanical Engineering) at Yale University (started August 2017, completed MS and MPhil in 2019). My research interests include dexterous manipulation with underactuated robotic hands, motion planning, and machine learning for dexterous tasks. Ultimately, I want to enable robots to better interact with human-made, unstructured environments. I conduct my research in the GRAB Lab led by Professor Aaron Dollar

Youngstown State University

I attended Youngstown State University as a recipient of the Leslie H. Cochran University Scholars program, granting a 4-year tuition and housing scholarship based on outstanding academic achievement. During my tenure, I spent much of my time volunteering within the city of Youngstown (over 110 hours logged each year), along with participating in Student Government and the Honors College.
