I graduated with my PhD from Georgia Tech’s Robotics and Intelligent Machines Center where I was advised by Prof. Charles C. Kemp in the Healthcare Robotics Lab. My background is in computer science and artificial intelligence so topics in areas such as machine learning, optimization, and computer vision are always near and dear to my intellectual heart. Ultimately, I dream of robots helping the world through skillful manipulation and enabling humans to live leisurely lives.
My specialty is robotics applications development, a skill that involves integrating various pieces of disparate technologies into full robotic systems. As robotics is a messy endeavor and the component technologies are often inadequate, I’m no stranger to rolling up my sleeves to create more adequate building blocks.
Currently, I’m looking for employment. So if you have any ideas, feel free to contact me!
Our entry to the PR2 Quick Start video contest paying homage to the Strong Bad techno Flash video. Here we get a sneak peak into the secret life of robots as the PR2 starts to break it down after the last student leaves the lab only to be discovered later by the same very confused student.
