I am a PhD student in Robotics Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I received my Master’s degree from WPI in May, 2013 and joined in Robotics and Intelligent Vehicles Research Laboratory (RIVeR Lab) as a PhD student later in June. My advisor is Professor Taskin Padir. I’m interested in robotics, real-time and embedded systems. My research focus is the control and navigation of mobile robots in cluttered environments. I’m also an active member of Team WPI-CMU for the DARPA Robotics Challenge.
