Hi! My name is Charles, and I'm a graduate student in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, and a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship awardee. Research-wise, my interests lie at the intersection of controls, learning/optimization, and systems theory, with a primary focus on building and verifying safe learning-enabled control systems. Before attending MIT, I received my B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA. Outside of the lab, I like to bake bread and climb rocks.
