I am a Ph.D. student at the USC Robotic Embedded Systems Lab in Los Angeles, CA. I am interested in methods that unify perception, planning, and control to increase the performance of autonomous mobile robots moving at speed in the real world. I also helped design and build USC's Crazyswarm 49-quadcopter research facility.

Before joining RESL, I worked as a professional software developer on industrial 3d scanning tools at Geomagic and the JMP visual statistics package at SAS. I completed a B.S. in Mathematics and B.A. in Photography at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA.
