About me

I am a third year doctoral student of robotics in the Soft Machines Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. I’m interested in medical robotics, soft actuator control, manipulation, and brain computer interfaces. In particular, my research focuses on understanding and controlling frictional properties of soft materials to bring new capabilities to robots.

Previously I held the roles of senior research analyst and programmer in the Auton Lab at Carnegie Mellon University and software engineer at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. My work has touched a variety of domains including medical diagnostics, radionuclide detection, counter human trafficking, and guided munitions.
