I am a Postdoctoral Associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), with Prof. Daniela Rus, and am co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Themis AI, Inc. I completed my PhD (2022), Master of Science (2018), and Bachelor of Science (2017) in Computer Science at MIT, with a minor in Mathematics.The objective of my research is to develop the science and engineering of autonomy and its applications to safe decision making for autonomous agents. My vision is a world with adaptive autonomous agents capable of learning to interact in complex, uncertain, and extreme scenarios, supporting people with cognitive and physical tasks. I have worked on learning end-to-end control (i.e., perception-to-actuation) of autonomous systems, formulating confidence of neural networks, mathematical modeling of human mobility, as well as building complex inertial refinement systems.In addition to research, I am also a lead organizer and lecturer for MIT 6.S191: Introduction to Deep Learning, MIT's official introductory course on deep learning. In high school, I was awarded the first place Grand Prize at the EU Content for Young Scientists and BTYSTE with my project entitled: Tennis Sensor Data Analysis: An Automated System for Macro Motion Refinement. I grew up in New York, and then moved to Dublin, Ireland, where I attended Castleknock College, and then returned to the US in 2012.Please click here for my curriculum vitae (CV) or a third-person bio.
