I’m Cherie, a first-year PhD Student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Prof. Sebastian Scherer at the AIR Lab. My current research focus is on learning reactive control policies for safe flight in indoor environments.


Before coming to CMU, I cofounded Zenith Robotics (w/ Prof. Chris Clark and Vaibhav Viswanathan). I graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2017 and worked at the Lab for Autonomous and Intelligent Robotics where I developed and deployed underwater robots to track sharks!
