I am a Principal Scientist at Google and Director of the Robotics Research team.

I teach Deep Learning on Udacity, and have worked on robotics, machine learning, audio and visual perception. I recently co-created the Conference on Robot Learning.

I grew up in France and now live in San Francisco.
