More About Me

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

Hi, my name is Michael. I'm currently a PhD Candidate at Colorado State University researching robotics and computational geometry. I'm an alum of Washington University in St. Louis, and I've had several internships in the robotics and automation industries. My research focuses on the design and control of redundant manipulators, and the advantages redundancy can give robotic systems. In my free time, I climb, photograph nature, and run.
