M.S in Mechanical Engineering
As a recent Masters graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, specializing in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Robotics, I am passionate about leveraging my knowledge and skills to contribute to cutting-edge advancements in the field. With a solid foundation in both theoretical principles and practical applications, I am well-equipped to tackle complex challenges in robotics, hardware development, and system integration.
Upon my graduation from Carnegie Mellon University I joined Path Robotics, a company specializing in creating autonomous welding solutions for manufacturing industries, as a Robot Deployment Engineer. As a Robot Deployment Engineer, I was involved in streamlining workflows, working with Robotics and Perception teams to create, test and verify cutting edge state-of-the-art solutions to enable the bring-up processes of the Robotic cells were as streamlined and fast as possible.
During my time at Carnegie Mellon, I pursued a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering - Research degree, focusing on Robotics. I had the privilege of working in the AirLab under the guidance of Prof. Sebastian Scherer, where I focused on time-optimal path planning for fixed-wing UAVs in uniform-wind conditions. This experience allowed me to develop expertise in optimizing path-solving algorithms and understanding the nuances of unmanned aerial systems. I even ended up publishing my research thesis in the prestigious IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters (RA-L) journal!
As a Graduate Research Assistant in the Biorobotics lab under Prof. Howie Choset, I explored the field of electronic waste recycling, broadening my understanding of sustainable technologies and their impact on the environment. This research experience further honed my problem-solving abilities and instilled in me a passion for developing innovative solutions to real-world challenges.
I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Engineering Mechanics. With a focus on Mechatronics and Design, I gained a strong foundation in the integration of mechanical systems and the application of engineering principles to develop functional and efficient solutions.
As I embark on the next phase of my career, I am actively seeking full-time opportunities in Robotics and Systems Integration. I am eager to join a dynamic and forward-thinking team where I can apply my interdisciplinary skill set and contribute to the development of groundbreaking technologies.
If you are interested in connecting or exploring potential collaborations, please feel free to reach out. I am excited about the possibilities that lie ahead and look forward to making meaningful contributions to the field of robotics and engineering.
