Hi there! I am a research engineer at FAIR. My general interests are language grounding in vision and control, reinforcement learning, and artificial general intelligence. My PhD research was learning to ground language in video. I received the degree from Purdue University in 2016.

As a fan of video games, I will be extremely thrilled if someday strong game AI is invented and integrated in game NPCs!
