As a Ph.D. graduate of the Neuroscience and Robotics Lab at Northwestern University, I have 7+ years of experience in the robotics field. My PhD research focused on the design and implementation of trajectory optimization and parametric learning algorithms for dynamical and multi-body systems. I have worked on a variety of robotic systems and platforms from control to sensing to electrical design.
In 2010, I was a recipient of the National Defense Science and Engineering Fellowship from the U.S. Department of Defense. As an undergraduate student at Penn State University, I was supported with the NASA Aeronautics Scholarship which also involved my internship at the NASA Ames Research Center in 2009.
In my free time, I enjoy getting outdoors to hike, ski, and everything in between.
