I am a PhD Candidate in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Previously, I did my undergraduate studies at Olin College of Engineering and spent two years working at Liquid Robotics in Silicon Valley.
I am working with Professor Ryan Eustice as a member of the Perceptual Robotics Laboratory. My research is focused on the perception of dynamic objects for mobile robotics. Specifically, I focus on dynamic obstacle detection and tracking for self-driving cars.
I am currently spending the summer at the Toyota Research Institute.
The Next Generation Vehicle (NGV) project is a collaboration between the University of Michigan and Ford Motor Company to create a self driving car. Each vehicle is instrument with sensors such as Velodyne LIDAR scanners, radar, and cameras and is capable of driving autonomously. My research is currently focusing on building algorithms to help detect and track dynamic obstacles on this platform.
