I am a PhD Candidate studying Robotics at Harvard University working with Vijay Janapa Reddi and Scott Kuindersma. My research is focused on developing and implementing open-source algorithms for dynamic motion planning and control of robots by exploiting both the mathematical structure of algorithms and the design of computational platforms. As such, my research is at the intersection of Robotics and Computer Architecture / Embedded Systems, Numerical Optimization, and Machine Learning. I also want to improve the accessibility of STEM education. I enjoy teaching and designing new interdisciplinary, project-based, open-access courses that lower the barrier to entry of cutting edge topics like TinyML. I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, daughter, and puppy, and ski racing in the winters.
