Jennifer Grannen

I am excited to be starting my PhD at Stanford this fall, supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Previously, I completed my Bachelors at UC Berkeley studying Computer Science, where I worked in the AUTOLAB within Berkeley AI Research (BAIR) and was advised by Professor Ken Goldberg.
