Hello! I’m currently a PhD candidate at Arizona State University (ASU), where I work on interesting and challanging problems realated to the field of human-robot interaction. I am advised by Prof. Heni Ben Amor and part of Interactive Robotics Laboratory (IRL).

The aim of my research is to improve the human-robot collaboration by leveraging combination of Mixed Reality, Robot Learning, and Large Language Models.
