I received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Tech in December of 2012. I am interested in robotics, both in mechanical design and in intelligence. I will begin working towards my Ph.D in Robotics at Georgia Tech in August of 2013.

My research interests are primarily related to the use of robots in ways that would benefit and protect humans, such as in hazardous environments (inspection, search-and-rescue, military). But I am always on the lookout for new and exciting developments in any aspect of robotics.

You can view my resume and read an overview of my robotics-related experience here.

An overview of my mechanical engineering work with the National Federation of the Blind’s Blind Driver Challenge Project is here. I worked on this project in Virginia Tech’s Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory (RoMeLa) from August of 2010 to May of 2011.

Details about my Bachelor’s Thesis project, a 5-degree-of-freedom robotic sensor arm that I designed and programmed, can be found here (A PDF of my thesis is also available there). This project was done during my study-abroad experience from September of 2011 to August of 2012 in Germany at the Technical University of Darmstadt.
