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.
May 2021 - Present
Developed path planning algorithms for high degree-of-freedom robotic systems in welding applications.
February 2021 - April 2021
Assembled custom, high-value automation products for customers. Assembly required knowledge to read mechanical and electrical diagrams, as well as the ability to operate heavy machinery.
May 2020 - August 2020
Researched and implemented robotic systems to automate medical lab work. Automated procedures included centrifuge tending, pipetting, and Covid-19 test processing.
May 2019 - August 2019 and May 2018 - August 2018
Researched constrained neural networks and their effective implementation on limited, general-purpose CPUs. The research focused on ternary neural network and acceleration via bitwise operations.
May 2017 - August 2017
Compared different methods of data transfer for small IoT devices. Provided field support for prototype connected products. Implemented an over-the-air firmware update solution.
