About Me


I am a PhD student at the University of California, Berkeley under Professor Claire Tomlin in the Hybrid Systems Lab.   My research is focused chiefly on the theory and application of new methods for the efficient navigation of dynamic systems with theoretical safety guarantees.  For current research projects please see below.

Before coming to Berkeley I completed an accelerated program at Drexel University in Philadelphia to obtain my undergraduate and masters degrees in mechanical engineering.  I worked in the Nanophotonics+ Lab, as well as the multidisciplinary lab The ExCITe Center.  My main areas of research were on photolithography manufacturing methods for disposable liquid crystal waveguides, knitted wearable antennas, and plasmonic biosensors.
