I am a pittsburgh based roboticist performing research at Carnegie Mellon University's biorobotics lab. I will be pursuing a Masters of Science in Robotics at CMU in the fall.

There are many areas of research I find interesting- walking robots and gaits, multi-agent interaction, distributed systems, embedded systems and tightly integrated robots. During the course of my masters program I hope to deepen my theoretical understanding of all these topics with research and design efficient robots utilizing these ideas for practical applications.

I earned a bachelors in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2020, and have worked in robotics since 2018. For more details check out the Education and Experience pages.


I recently graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelors in Computer Science. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University. My current academic achievements include:


Commissioning of Robotic Inspection and Automated Analysis System for Assay of Gas Diffusion Piping

This paper discusses the challenged with commissioning a robotic NDA system, and reflects much of the work done on the RadPiper project. See the RadPiper publications page for other publications from that project.

Work Experience

I am proud of the work I have done and am doing at all of these locations, for any further questions about myself or my work experience feel free to contact me at my e-mail

Other Skills (Hobbies)

Web development and music are both hobbies of mine. I started web development when I was in 7th grade and have loved it ever since. I am proficient in databasing as well and have run minecraft servers, debugging and troubleshooting are both favorite tasks of mine. I also enjoy music and play with varying degrees of skill the following:

Contact Information

You can probably find me somewhere roaming the illustrious City of Pittsburgh (this is a lie, I'm probably in a basement somewhere writing code), but for the meantime if you need to contact me please use the following contact information.
