I am a Master of Computing (AI Specialization) student at the National University of Singapore. I am interested in the intersection between self-supervised learning, world models and object-centric representations for robotics.

Previously, I held these positions:

Concept Collection

In this section, I catalog interesting concepts/terms from research papers to help me remember them and spark ideas with lateral thinking. I also list their source(s) and a short summary of each concept. Feel free to reach out to me and let me know if I get any of them wrong.
