Lerrel Pinto

I will be starting as an Assistant Professor at NYU in Fall 2020. If you are interested in joining my research group please read this.

Currently, I am a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley, working with Alyosha Efros and Pieter Abbeel. Before this, I received a Ph.D. in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, working with Abhinav Gupta.
