Welcome! I’m a PhD candidate at Georgia Tech’s Robotics and Intelligent Machines Center, currently a member of the Healthcare Robotics Lab, and advised by Prof. Charles C. Kemp. 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 healing the world through intelligent skillful manipulation to eventually enable humans to live contented leisurely lives.
My specialty, through experience, 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 often inadequate, I’m no stranger to rolling up my sleeves to create more adequate building blocks.
Currently, I’m finishing up my thesis and 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.
