Hey! I'm Jeremy, and I'm a Machine Learning PhD student at Georgia Tech advised by Animesh Garg. I obtained my MS in Robotics at Georgia Tech under Charlie Kemp, and I have a BS from the University of Arkansas, where I worked with Yue Chen. My research interests are in deep learning applied to robotics. I am particularly interested in video understanding, visuomotor control, and robotics at scale.

"...the actual contents of minds are tremendously, irredeemably complex; we should stop trying to find simple ways to think about the contents of minds, such as simple ways to think about space, objects, multiple agents, or symmetries... We want AI agents that can discover like we can, not which contain what we have discovered. Building in our discoveries only makes it harder to see how the discovering process can be done."
