About

I am a PhD student at McGill University in the Mobile Robotics Lab. I am also a visiting researcher at Facebook AI Research. I am supervised by Professor David Meger and Professor Adriana Romero. Please contact me via the email on the left for collaboration opportunities.

My interests lie in the intersection of 3D object understanding and robotics. This includes 3D object generation, and prediction from a variety of input modalities and 3D understanding for robot-object interaction.
