I’m a PhD student working on self-driving cars at the UC Berkeley RISELab, where I’m advised by Professor Ion Stoica and Professor Joseph Gonzalez.

I’m interested in how techniques from computer systems can make self-driving cars safer and more reliable. To that effect, I’ve helped build 2 open-source software projects:

Previously, I contributed to several successful open-source projects:


Pylot: A Modular Platform for Exploring Latency-Accuracy Tradeoffs in Autonomous Vehicles. Ionel Gog*, Sukrit Kalra*, Peter Schafhalter*, Matthew A. Wright, Joseph E. Gonzalez, Ion Stoica. ICRA 2021.

* These authors have made equal contributions.
