Hi, I'm a second-year PhD student at Stanford University, advised by Professor Shuran Song and part of the REAL lab. Previously, I was an undergraduate student at Columbia University studying Computer Science and Applied Math.

My work focuses on robot perception and manipulation. More specifically, I'm interested in developing methods for embodied agents to better perceive and understand the environment through multimodal data (e.g. vision, language, audio), which facilitates learning of robust and generalizable policies.
