My name is Robby Costales and I am a computer science PhD student at the University of Southern California advised by Fei Sha and Professor Maja Matarić. My interests broadly lie in scaling reinforcement learning algorithms to real-world environments, with the long-term aim of training generally capable AI systems.

Previously, I was a student researcher at Google Brain where I was advised by Izzeddin Gür, and an undergraduate at Columbia University, where I was advised by Professor Junfeng Yang.
