Nur Muhammad "Mahi" Shafiullah

I am trying to teach robots to do all my chores at @NYU-robot-learning Previously @facebookresearch

Hello, I am Mahi!

I am a fourth-year Computer Science Ph.D. student at NYU Courant working primarily with Prof. Lerrel Pinto. I work on machine learning problems that allow robots to learn both from humans and on their own. Recently, I was a visiting scientist at Fundamental AI Research (FAIR) at Meta with Ishan Misra.

I am grateful for the 2023 Apple Scholars in AI/ML PhD fellowship for supporting my research.
