NSF GRFP 2016 Fellow
Master's student, University of Michigan
Podcast Director, Robohub
I am an NSF Fellow and a Master's student in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. I am part of Dr. C. David Remy's Robotics and Motion Laboratory (RAM-Lab), which develops legged robots and assistive robotic devices such as active prostheses and exoskeletons. Also, I am the Podcast Director for Robohub, a nonprofit robotics news organization.
What I've Been Working On
Learning stable and energetically economical walking with RAMone
I am applying reinforcement learning techniques to our bipedal robot RAMone in simulation and on hardware.
A fast 2D rigid-body simulator
I wrote a fast 2D rigid body simulator in Matlab—then in C++. The simulator is a time-stepping simulator that uses position-based constraints and a Coulomb friction model.
