I am a senior year undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley, double majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. I grew up in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and came to the United States for university four years ago. Currently, I am most interested in learning-based control in robotics and autonomous systems. Outside the classroom I am involved in research on campus and the California Sailing Team.

This past summer, I began work with Professor Benjamin Recht on learning control for autonomous racing in unstructured, cluttered environments from visual sensor input. This work is affiliated with the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Lab (BAIR). In addition, I work on convergence analysis of Learning Model Predictive Control policies on stochastic systems under Professor Francesco Borrelli in the Model Predictive Control Lab, where I previously worked on decentralized data-driven control strategies for autonomous racing with multiple agents.
