Bryon Tjanaka

I am an undergraduate computer science major at UC Irvine. I work with Roy Fox and the Intelligent Dynamics Lab on hierarchical reinforcement learning, and with David Mobley, Jessica Maat, and the Mobley Lab on molecular dynamics force fields. I have also served as Internal Vice President of ACM@UCI, and I have interned at Google for two summers. This Fall, I will be joining the ICAROS Lab at USC as I pursue a PhD in Computer Science under the supervision of Stefanos Nikolaidis.

My main interests are in robotics and AI, particularly hierarchical reinforcement and imitation learning, clustering, and human-robot collaboration. I have also explored computational chemistry, competitive programming, and web development.

During high school, I competed in the VEX Robotics Competition with team 86868: The Resistance and won the 2017 VEX Robotics High School World Championship.
