PhD student

University of Toronto

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto, where I am supervised by Dr. Tovi Grossman and Dr. Anthony Tang. I am passionate about how we can design systems and techniques to support natural and intuitive human-robot interaction. Prior to joining the University of Toronto, I received my MSc in Computer Science at the University of Calgary where I studied how we can design autonomous vehicle-pedestrian interaction. I also hold a BSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alberta.
