Research Interests

I work on imitation and representation learning, robot grasping, and their large scale adoption with Fog and Cloud Robotics, in collaboration with Ken Goldberg. My interests broadly revolve around developing machine learning techniques for solving real-world problems. The main scientific subjects I investigate include:

  • Machine Learning
  • Mixture Models
  • Reinforcement Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Subspace Clustering
  • Optimization Techniques
