About me

Welcome! I’m a Ph.D. student studying Computational Science, Engineering, and Mathematics within The Oden Institute at The University of Texas at Austin. I’m a member of Professor Ufuk Topcu’s Autonomous Systems Group.

Prior to my graduate studies in Austin, I obtained a Bachelors of Applied Science degree from The University of British Columbia, where I studied Engineering Physics and minored in Honours Mathematics.

Research Interests I’m interested in studying how prior knowledge can be incorporated into reinforcement learning (RL) systems in order to improve their data efficiency and their generalizability, particularly in the context of safety-critical engineering applications. My two most recent projects have focused on compositional RL systems, and on using physics-based knowledge to improve the data efficiency and generalizability of neural network models of dynamical systems.
