Update: I'll be joining the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor as an assistant professor with the Robotics Institute and the Mechanical Engineering Department in the Fall of 2020! Visit our lab page for more information.
I am a Post Doctoral candidate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I also earned my PhD in the Summer of 2019. I work on Inference, Modeling, Control, and Learning algorithms applied to Robotic Manipulation, the science and art of robots interacting with their world. I am a member of the MCube Lab, directed by Prof. Alberto Rodriguez.
Prior to MIT, I was an MSc student in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maryland at College Park, were I (mostly) worked on system identification and modeling of the human arterial tree and the pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics of the human body.
I have a BSc from Amirkabir University of Technology, were I worked on adaptive and nonlinear control and identification of vehicle engines.
