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.
In my spare time, I like to dabble in astrophotography.
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.
