I am an Assistant Professor at Duke University where I lead the General Robotics Lab. I obtained my Ph.D. at Columbia Univesity with Hod Lipson. My research interests span across Robotics, Perception, Machine Learning, Human-AI Teaming, AI for Science, and Dynamical Systems.

I am interested in developing "generalist robots" that learn, act and improve by perceiving and interacting with the complex and dynamic world. Ultimately, I hope that robots and machines can equip with high-level cognitive skills to assist people and unleash human creativity.
