Carnegie Mellon University

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in the Robotics Institute advised by Prof. Katia Sycara. Before that, I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from National University Singapore (NUS), where I was fortunated to be advised by Prof. Harold Soh. My interest spans multiple areas, including knowledge representation, human robot collaboration and multi-agent reinforcement learning. I am particularly interested in incorporating symbolic domain knowledge methods to enhance deep neural networks. In the long run, I want to make intelligent agents accessible to everyone and enhance people’s lives by making it sample efficient, reliable and interpretable.
