Industry Projects

I am interested in bringing robots into the real world in ways that benefit social infrastructure. I have spent recent years focused on autonomous driving, but I have research experience helping robots fly, drive, and swim without hitting things.

I am currently at Waymo, working to make driving safer, smoother, and smarter with machine learning.

Some cool stuff

At Nuro, I led the team responsible for conceptualization, validation, and deployment of new features and architectures for decision making, trajectory optimization, and simulated agent behavior. I set technical direction and ensured cross-functional alignment to scale up the team and achieve major milestones.

Our team’s work helped demonstrate our robot, R2’s, ability to operate autonomously without a driver nor an operator in a chase-car in Arizona, California, and Texas.

We also helped perform contactless deliveries for temporary COVID-19 hospitals and offer autonomous pizza deliveries to real Dominos' customers.

X, the moonshot factory


At X, I worked on the planning team to develop numerical optimization algorithms and C++ software for a self-driving passenger car. The initiative later spun out into Waymo, an independent Alphabet subsidiary.
