Hello there! My name is Edwin, and I’m a graduate student at Stanford University working on intelligent sensing through computer vision and robotics.

In short, teaching robots to act based on what they see.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with Highest Honors from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2020, along with a minor in Computer Science focused on artificial intelligence. I led a start-up company called PreSense through acquisition as part of the Alchemy Deep Tech Incubator Program, with advising from Professor Sanjay Patel, Professor Wen-mei Hwu, and Jinjun Xiong.

My primary research explores video-based scene understanding, it’s usefulness for understanding deformable objects, and it’s applications in robotic manipulation.

Long term, I want to enable robotic care-givers designed to do no harm.
