I am a Roboticist and Research Fellow at the University of Michigan working on the academic side of a UM-Ford-State Farm project to develop next-generation automated vehicles. I am affiliated with the APRIL and PeRL Labs.
In my previous appointment as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the LCSR at Johns Hopkins University, I investigated how advanced user interfaces and control frameworks can be used to advance NASA’s efforts towards on-orbit satellite servicing and repair.
As a doctoral student at the University of Michigan, I pursued similar research on teleoperation under time delay with Prof. Dawn Tilbury, where my dissertation was focused on human-robot interaction for terrestrial mobile manipulators.
My research interests include robotics, computer vision, sensor fusion, teleoperation, human-robot interaction, user modeling, space teleoperation, mixed and augmented reality, mechatronics, dynamics, and controls.
