My research interests consist of learning how to move and making pretty pictures.

Currently computer science PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin advised by Philipp Krähenbühl.

Controlled experiments indicate that explicit intermediate representations help action.
Don't let your Discriminator be fooled

When I’m not working, I’m probably watching or playing video games.

I also have two cat roommates - Pig and Teddy.
