I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science department and the Jacques I. Pankove Faculty Fellow at the University of Colorado. I lead the Autonomous Robotics & Perception Group, conducting research in robotics, control theory, and perception.
I earned my PhD at Cornell University in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, where I conducted research on nonlinear delay-differential equations and coupled oscillators with an emphasis on perturbations, differential geometry and analysis. I was also previously a National Research Council Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Naval Research Laboratory under the direction of Ira Schwartz and in collaboration with Ani Hsieh at Drexel University. Before joining the faculty at CU-Boulder, I was a research scientist with Gabe Sibley and chiefly maintained the tools in our GitHub.
