I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Science Department at
Georgia Tech working in the Robotics and Intelligent Machines Lab
with Prof. Charles
(now at University of Texas at Austin).
I completed my Masters degree in the ECE Department at Rutgers
University where I worked with Prof. Michael
in the Real Life Reinforcement Learning Laboratory (RL3
My research interests are in machine learning, reinforcement
learning, deep learning and interactive systems. My primary area
of focus has been to integrate reinforcement learning methods with
information from humans. I have had experience in applying my
methods to both virtual agents and robotic systems. As part of my
doctoral research, I am working on state space exploration
strategies and representation learning (using deep learning) for
sequential decision making problems.
