I am currently a Robotics Engineer with Boston Dynamics.
I completed my PhD in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I worked with Professor Ryan Eustice as a member of the Perceptual Robotics Laboratory. My research focused on object tracking and dynamic motion estimation for mobile robotics, specifically for autonomous vehicle applications.
The Next Generation Vehicle (NGV) project was a collaboration between the University of Michigan and Ford Motor Company to create a self driving car. Each vehicle is instrumented with sensors such as Velodyne LIDAR scanners, radar, and cameras and is capable of driving autonomously. I built algorithms to help detect and track dynamic obstacles on this platform.
