About me

Hi, I am currently an AI research engineer at the Institute of Infocomm Research, Agency of Science, Technology and Research working with Dr Cheston Tan. I am currently based in Singapore. My research interest is in the areas of Embodied AI, Robot Learning, Computational Cognitive Science, and Computer Vision.

Previously, I earned my B.Eng (Electrical and Electronics Engineering) with honors (Highest Distinction) from the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore and work with Professor Wen Bihan on my final year thesis. I was previously an A*STAR undergraduate scholar. I have also worked with Dr Ayanna Howard during my exchange at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

I am currently a recipient of the National Science (PhD) scholarship and will be starting my PhD at the University of Washington, Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science Engineering under the advisory of Professor Dieter Fox.
