Bio: I study a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) called reinforcement learning (RL). I am currently co-directing the Autonomous Learning Lab (ALL) at UMass Amherst with Sridhar Mahadevan. Before that I worked as a postdoc for Emma Brunskill at CMU. I completed my Ph.D. in computer science at UMass Amherst in 2015, where Andrew Barto was my adviser. I completed my B.S. and M.S. in computer science at CWRU in 2008 and 2009, where Michael Branicky was my adviser. Before that, in high school, I was introduced to computer science and mentored by David Kosbie.
