About Me

I am a fifth-year PhD student in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. I earned a B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford in 2014 and 2016, respectively, with my coursework focusing on dynamics, mechatronics, and controls. As a member of the CHARM Lab, I have worked on the design and control of soft robots with a particular interest in haptics applications. In 2017, I received a Chateaubriand Fellowship to work with the DEFROST (Deformable Robotic Software) team at Inria in Lille, France. I'm interested in robotics simulation, control, and design for a wide variety of applications.
