I am a 3rd Year PhD Student in Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. I received a B.A. in Computer Science and Cognitive Science at the University of California, Berkeley, where I worked on a Bayesian music recommender system based on a psychological model of similarity judgment. I continue to research cognitive science applications to real world problems, such as search and rescue missions and self-driving cars. My current research interests include biologically inspired spatial navigation, transfer learning, neurorobotics, and decision making.
