About

I am currently working at 6 River Systems working on all things robotics for application in fulfillment. See more about our robots, called Chucks here.

Previously, I was at Voyage Auto building decision making ingredients (behavior planning, predictions and remote discrete assistance) for autonomous driving, and before that, I was at Apple SPG building autonomous systems. Prior to venturing into industry, I was an academic conducting research on normative navigation behaviors for mobile service robots at the University of Freiburg as part of my PhD studies. In the more distant past, I have been fortunate to work in a number of labs including DFKI, the Manipulation lab at RI-CMU, TU-Munich, Idiap research institute among others.

My main research interest is in sequential decision making, and how it is applied to a number of AI tasks in various domains like robotics (e.g. self driving cars, warehouse fulfillment), value alignment, intelligent behavior design, amongst others.

In my free time, I like to learn new things. I am currently learning elixir and rust programming languages.
