Biography

I am a mechanical engineering graduate student at the University of Michigan. I received a BS in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Energy Studies from MIT in 2012. After graduation I worked as a well engineer at Shell Oil Company in New Orleans, LA. I began my graduate studies at Michigan in 2016.

Research Interests

My research focuses on utilizing optimization theory to design controllers for autonomous vehicles. I am currently interested in:

  • Safe trajectory planning in uncertain environments
  • Incorporation of modeling uncertainty in trajectory planning and selection
