Nikhil Mishra

I'm a PhD student at UC Berkeley, in Pieter Abbeel's group within Berkeley AI Research Lab (BAIR), and a research scientist at Covariant. Before that, I also spent time at OpenAI and Google Brain.

I did my undergrad and Masters (in EECS) at Berkeley as well, and did research in the same group. I'm interested in the intersection of robotics, vision, and reinforcement learning.
