About Me

I was a Ph.D. student and endowed research fellow with CNEL. I received my Bachelors of Science, with high honors, in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida. I also received my Masters of Engineering and Doctorate of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering from the University of Florida.
 
My Research Interests

My dissertation research focused on the application of information-theoretic concepts to reinforcement learning. My other research interests include relational learning, stochastic dynamics reduction, and robotic control.
