I am a PhD candidate in Computer Engineering at the University of Virginia. Since Fall 2017, I have been working with the Dependable Systems and Analytics Lab. My research interests lie at the intersection of machine learning, dependability and robotics. I am particularly interested finding solutions to safer robotic surgery through understanding contexts in surgical tasks and distinguishing between unsafe and safe gestures.
