About Me


I am a doctoral student studying Computer Science at the University of Southern California (USC), with a B.S. in Imaging Science from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). At USC, I work with Dr. Milind Tambe in his Teamcore lab, part of the Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS). My research interests include computer vision and deep learning, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and multi-agent systems, especially applied to conservation and sustainability.
