Cedrick Argueta

I am an undergrad at Stanford University, where I work on reinforcement learning and drones. I study computer science with a concentration in artificial intelligence, and I try to apply my knowledge to problems in the field of aerospace.

I've done internships at NASA JPL and The Aerospace Corporation. I'll be returning to Aerospace this summer as a machine learning research intern.

I'm interested in reinforcement learning, computer vision, and autonomous control. I currently do research in the Stanford Intelligent Systems Lab with Prof. Mykel Kochenderfer and Louis Dressel, a former PhD candidate now at Wing. We are trying to demonstrate the effectiveness of reinforcement learning in a bearing-only localization problem.
