Hi! I am Charles! I am a third-year student majoring mathematics and computer science at Macalester College advised by Prof. Andrew Beveridge and Susan Fox. I am also a research intern at Allen Institute for AI (AI2) advised by Luca Weihs.
My primary research interest lies in designing, developing, optimizing, and deploying elegant learning algorithms as well as their underlying mathematical principles to build autonomous (embodied, multi) agents that can perform in dynamic environments, solving real-world puzzles for social good. I am especially interested in the safety, generalizability, and sample efficiency for vision-based reinforcement learning in the real world.
