I am an first-year Robotics Ph.D. student at Georgia Tech. I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from California State University Long Beach in May 2019. My research interests lie at the intersection of Robotics and Rehabilitation. Leveraging wearable robots (i.e., prostheses and exoskeletons) to restore or augment human capabilities is pretty awesome. I hope to utilize my graduate studies to help bridge the gap between human and machine by advancing intent recognition algorithms.
Another passion of mine is community outreach. My nontraditional upbringing has taught me the importance of mentorship. I aspire to uplift those who may not have the same opportunities as others.
Most of my free time is spent playing the beautiful game of soccer and gaining new technical skills relevant to the field of robotics. There is always something exciting to learn in the field of Robotics!
