About Me

I'm a PhD student at Simon Fraser University's Autonomy Lab. My research interests are largely centered around multi-agent robotics, and I also enjoy studying computer graphics and real-time systems. Previously, I was a robotics team leader at Archiact. I'm Chair of the IEEE RAS Student Activities Committee and a member of the RAS Administrative Committee.
