It's Me, Josh!

I am a second year PhD student at The University of Texas at Austin advised by Joydeep Biswas and Swarat Chaudhuri. I am interested in neuro-symbolic program synthesis, robotics, and reinforcement learning.

I lead the NeuroSymbolic reading group, and I am the TA for CS 378: Safe and Ethical Artificial Intelligence. Additionally, I am a proud alum of Northeastern University Khoury College and CCIS.

Research

  • Deep Reinforcement Learning

    Creating methods that learn more optimal neural policies for a variety of continuous domains

  • NeuroSymbolic Programming

    Techniques that leverage the reliability and strength of formal methods in combination with the power of neural networks

  • Robotics

    Deploying trained models to robots to test algorithms and techniques in the physical world

Service

I am proud to lend a hand when I can
