I’m broadly interested in applying numerical optimization to fundamental problems in robotics. Recently, I’ve been searching for ways to model frictional contact that allow robots to efficiently use it.
I am currently a doctoral candidate in the MEAM department and the GRASP Lab at Penn. I work in the DAIR Laboratory, where I am advised by Prof. Michael Posa. Previously, I was an Electrical Engineering undergraduate at UIUC, where I wrote an undergraduate thesis advised by Prof. Seth Hutchinson. I have also worked at Blue Origin, LinkedIn, and Riverbed.
