About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of Washington, advised by Dieter Fox. Previously, I was a researcher at NUS under David Hsu. My interests are in Human-Robot Interaction, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, and Machine Learning. I graduated with a Bachelors in Computer Eng. from NUS. During my stint as an undergrad, I spent a year at Stanford, and also interned at a YCombinator AR startup.

Miscellaneous

My Erdos number is at most three (Mohit Shridhar → David Hsu → Maria Klawe → Paul Erdős).
But unfortunately my Erdos–Bacon–Sabbath number is undefined.

I am a fan of films, science fiction, and Oxford commas.
