I am an engineer, roboticist, and programmer.
- 2014–2016: Carnegie Mellon University, M.S. Robotics
- 2008–2014: University of British Columbia, B.A.Sc. Eng. Phys.
My advisor is George Kantor. I am currently working on SLAM using a combination of cameras and a LIDAR, for an autonomous off-road vehicle. I am interested in robot perception and localization, computer vision, and machine learning. My thesis is about using machine learning to combine several different SLAM algorithms, each with different strengths and weaknesses, so that a robot can function robustly in many different environments.
In my spare time, I like to contribute to Wikipedia, make 3D models, work on personal programming projects, do programming contests, take photos, and do web design.
My email address is the same as my full name except with an ‘@’ in between my first and middle names and a dot between my middle and last name.
