Human-Robot InteractionRobotics


I received a B.S. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University in 2007. From 2007 through 2013 I worked at The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory as a software engineer. My work focused on developing hybrid continuous and discrete time simulations and simulation tools for flight control systems of rockets. I worked on a variety of other projects at APL, including cyber security and data compression projects. I received an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering with a focus on photonics from the Johns Hopkins University in 2010. I joined the Interaction Lab at USC in the Fall of 2013.
