I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Toronto within the Toronto Intelligent Decision Engineering Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. J. Christopher Beck. I completed my B.A.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering at UofT specializing in robotics and automation. My doctoral research lies at the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and operations research (OR), where I study planning and scheduling with applications in multi-robot systems through my involvement with the Autonomous Systems and Biomechatronics Laboratory. My primary research goal is to develop new and efficient search techniques to solve various autonomous decision-making problems. Broadly, my interests include combinatorial optimization, constraint satisfaction, mathematical & constraint programming, automated scheduling, machine learning, and robotics.
