No Longer Updating
Now that I'm done with grad school, I'm a research assistant professor in CSE! I'm going to start posting updates exclusively to my new site.
I'm the 2013 Regents' Scholar for the University of Nevada, Reno!
It's a great honor. Kirstin Swagman (of the College of Engineering) wrote a nice article about me and my work here.
New Personal Site
As I near the end of my time as a graduate student here, I'm moving much of my web presence to a new site, which you can find here.
Cyber-Physical Systems Capitol Hill Event
In July 2009, I went to Washington D.C. to talk to the National Science Foundation and members of the Senate about the work I've been doing that's relevant to Cyber-Physical Systems - a topic that the government has recently identified as a key area of research. For details in pdf form, click here.
The visit was also featured on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's webpage. For more (including a video with Senator Reid's remarks), click here.
Looking for LaTeX Information?
LaTeX is the de facto standard system for typesetting documents in math, science, and engineering. If you're a graduate student in one of these fields and you don't know at least basic LaTeX, you're doing yourself a disservice.
I've written up a short tutorial on typesetting technical documents using LaTeX. You can find it here.
I am a doctoral student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno. I got my B.S. in Mathematics at the University of Washington in Seattle, where I also studied Philosophy (focusing on logic, social philosophy, and ancient philosophy).
About My Work
I work in the UNR Robotics Lab, under Monica Nicolescu. My interests in computer science are mainly related to social artificial intelligence and learning, particularly in the context of autonomous mobile robots and cyber-physical systems.
