I am currently a graduate student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and advised by Chris Atkeson. Previously, I was a student in the Center for Robotics and Intelligent Machines at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where my research was jointly advised by (in the order of appearance) Magnus B. Egerstedt, Ayanna M. Howard, and Mike Stilman.
My research falls under the great umbrella of intelligent systems, studying how artificial agents can achieve human-like intelligence through sophisticated perception, autonomy, and control. As a result, I’ve been known to flirt with artificial intelligence, computer vision, control theory, and machine learning, but I mainly consider myself to be a roboticist. My current research focuses on humanoid robots, developing algorithms for planning and control that enables these robots to meet and exceed the capabilities of human beings in performing everyday tasks.
According to the official Wikipedia records, I made my first edit on October 20, 2006, at 5:39:37 PM. Although I've been a frequent reader previously, my real contributions did not begin until March 30, 2008, when I started adding my nonlinear control notes to Wikipedia and started a series of articles on the subject. I created my first article on the backstepping technique on March 31, 2008, and since then, I've made contributions to a variety of articles ranging from routing algorithms to Bellman award laureates.
