Research Interests

I work with Ken Goldberg in AutoLab and BAIR on imitation and representation learning, robot grasping, and their large scale adoption with Fog and Cloud Robotics. My interests broadly revolve around developing machine learning technqiues for solving real-world problems. The main scientific subjects I investigate include:

  • Machine Learning
  • Mixture Models
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Subspace Clustering
  • Optimization Techniques

Recent News

  • Two papers on robot learning have been accepted at ISRR 2019.

  • I gave an invited talk on Generative Models for Robot Learning at UC Merced.

  • Two papers on imitation learning have been accepted at WAFR 2018.

  • I defended my PhD thesis at EPFL. Thanks to all the jury members !

  • I finished my internship at Google X in Mountain View, California, 2017.
