Here at JPL, I am working on projects which involve multi-vehicle collaboration for hostile target detection and tracking. I am also interested in pursuit-evasion games and lately begun to explore connections between these subjects and online convex minimization.I completed my Ph.D in the department of Computer Science at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis in 2015. It was my great pleasure to work with Dr. Volkan Isler, and the Robotic Sensor Networks lab. My thesis concerned competitive, online algorithms applied to multi-robot path-planning for sensing. E.g., using robots to mine geo statistical data (see: Precision Agriculture) or track invasive species.
In my free time I enjoy boxing, climbing, camping, sailing, live music, and road-biking. I have also begun doing volunteer web development for non-profit organizations using the Catch-a-fire service and the United Nations Volunteer network. I encourage you to contact me directly if you are interested in discussing a possible project.
