I am a research engineer at FAIR. My general interests are language grounding in vision and control, reinforcement learning, and artificial general intelligence. I received my PhD degree from Purdue University in 2016, where my thesis topic was learning to ground language in videos.

Prior to joining FB, I spent two wonderful years at Baidu Research Sunnyvale as a research scientist.
