I am a Postdoc in the Robot Locomotion Group at MIT CSAIL working with Russ Tedrake and leading the control and planning effort for the MIT DARPA Robotics Challenge team. My current research is focused on the development of control algorithms for humanoids in continuously changing contact with their environment. I recently completed a PhD in the Computer Science Department at UMass Amherst under the supervision of Rod Grupen and Andy Barto.
