I am a PhD Candidate studying Robotics at Harvard University working with Vijay Janapa Reddi and Scott Kuindersma. I want to improve the accessibility of STEM education. As such, I enjoy teaching and designing new interdisciplinary, project-based, open-access courses that lower the barrier to entry of cutting edge topics like TinyML. My research is focused on developing and implementing algorithms for dynamic motion planning and control of complex, high dimensional 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, Numerical Optimization, and Machine Learning. I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, daughter, and puppy, and ski racing in the winters.
