New and improved version: Now includes Ph.D in Computer Science!
I currently work at the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena California. My thesis was titled "Active Target Localization and Tracking with Application for Robotic Environmental Monitoring".
My interests are in decision, tracking, and estimation problems, especially exploiting the mobility of the robot to improve estimates. I also study Pursuit Evasion games under sensing uncertainty and the use of robots in environmental monitoring tasks such as precision agriculture.
In my free time I love boxing, camping, sailing, and travelling around.
