I am a fourth-year undergraduate student at UC Berkeley, pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences.
I currently work in Prof. Sergey Levine’s lab as an undergraduate researcher, working on model-based reinforcement learning together with my mentors Roberto Calandra and Rowan McAllister.
My interests include reinforcement learning, machine learning, as well as pure mathematics.
This semester, I am a TA for EECS 126, an upper-division course on probability and random processes.
