Hi! I’m Kush, a senior at the University of Texas at Austin. I’ll be graduating in May 2022 with a Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering, specializing in Data Science and Information Processing. I’ve worked as an Undergraduate Research Assistant at the Socially Intelligent Machines Lab with Professor Andrea Thomaz.

I’m currently applying to PhD programs with the goal of furthering human robot collaboration. I’ve developed this interest through my research collaboration with Akanksha Saran as well as my internship experience at Diligent Robotics. I am also a co-host of the Talking Robotics seminar series.

Outside of work and school, I enjoy reading science fiction, nerding out about the MCU and playing amateur-level chess.
