I am an incoming Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Barnard College, Columbia University, co-chair of TinyMLedu, and junior co-chair for the IEEE RAS TC on Model Based Optimization for Robotics.
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 robotics and embedded machine learning.
