Research Interests

I am a Senior Systems Scientist at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University and the National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC). My work focuses on using robotics for discovery and exploration, and as a workforce for hazardous duty and in demanding applications.

Since 1998, I have led recognized robotic programs and produced robotics systems and technology for Robotic Search for Antarctic Meteorites (1998-2000), Unmanned Ground Combat Vehicle (2001-2002),Gladiator (2002-2004), Tactical Unmanned Ground Vehicle (2005-2008), and Safe Operations of Unmanned systems for Reconnaissance in Complex Environments (2010-2012).

My research interests are in robotic mobility, mechanisms, robot configuration, design, mechatronics,mechanics, dynamics, and control. Currently I lead research and development of autonomous robots for mining of noble metals, novel robotic mechanisms for all-terrain mobility, and new methods for design and prototyping of unmanned ground vehicles.
