I am a Postdoctoral Associate at Cornell University working in the
Verifiable Robotics group. I successfully defended my PhD
thesis in August 2015 at WPI, where I was part of RAIL.
The long term goal of my research is to use language grounding, semantic reasoning and formal verification to allow embodied agents to communicate and to learn from people.
