I am an independent junior research group leader at TU Berlin heading the Intelligent Multi-Robot Coordination Lab. Previously, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the Department of Aerospace, California Institute of Technology, advised by Soon-Jo Chung. I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the the University of Southern California, where I was advised by Nora Ayanian. My research focuses on enabling large teams of physical robots to collaboratively solve real-world tasks, using tools from informed search, optimization, and machine learning.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, hanging out in a hammock, and playing the ukulele.
