I am a PhD student in Robotics with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute Joint Program. I’m fortunate to work alongside great people in the Marine Robotics Group, under Prof. John Leonard.
My research leverages graph theory, geometry, and probability to build novel optimization algorithms which enable robust localization and mapping in the real world.
Before working in robotics I spent my undergraduate years working with a great group of people on the Illini Motorsports Formula SAE team. Here I oversaw a team of over 40 members, engaged in a number of mechanical design projects, and took part in a number of international competitions.
Helping to mitigate climate change is of huge importance to me and is a central aspect to my future plans.
