I completed my undergraduate degree at Cornell University, with a Mechanical Engineering major and an Entomology minor.
At Cornell University I worked in the Laboratory for Intelligent Machine Systems. As part of the DARPA M3 Actuation project, we focused on developing bio-inspired hydraulic actuators, and hydraulic walking robots.
The hydraulic walking robot on a treadmill suspension system I designed and built.
Hanging out with the robot mid-assembly, 2012.
I built a demonstration platform for variable recruitment McKibbon actuation, which was presented at the June 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge.

My independent research project resulted in a poster presentation and conference proceedings.
