I'm currently a Software Engineer working on the Onboard Scene Semanics team at Waymo. I work closely with upstream perception teams to build a unified understaning of the driving space in complex situations like construction, emergency vehicle scenes, and generally any time a map is incorrect or insufficient to understand how to drive. My team helps not only inform onboard driving, but also a coordinated fleet response to road closures, accidents, and other anomalous situations.
Prior to joining Waymo in 2017, I was a Computer Science graduate student working at the APRIL lab at the University of Michigan, with a focus on Robotics. APRIL focuses on multi-robot mapping and communication.
