Teaching

Fall 2015: NAVARCH320
Substitute Lecturer
Marine Hydrodynamics I

Filled in for several lectures for an undergraduate fluids course covering: Concepts and basic equations of marine hydrodynamics. Similitude and dimensional analysis, basic equations in integral form, continuity, and Navier-Stokes equations. Ideal fluid flow, Euler’s equations, Bernoulli equation, free surface boundary value problems. Laminar and turbulent flows in pipes and around bodies. [Source]

 

September 2014
Practical Session Leader and Lecturer
IEEE-RAS Response Robotics Summer School and Workshop

Instructor for the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Response Robotics Summer School and Workshop (RRSS+W) in Perth, Australia. My practical session group spent two days in the Perth Artifactory hackerspace designing and building a rescue robot, focusing on the robot’s interactions with human operators and bystanders throughout the design process. My lecture provided an introduction to human-robot interaction (HRI) with a focus on considerations for rescue robotics.
