Hi, I'm Kevin. I'm currently a PhD student at Berkeley AI advised by Professor Sergey Levine. I am graciously supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
Previously, I graduated from UT Austin where I worked with Professor Scott Niekum. Before that, I worked on the Seeker mission as part of the Texas Spacecraft Laboratory. I was a member of the Turing Scholars and Dean's Scholars honors programs.
