Welcome! Here you will find information about my research.

Brief Bio

I am currently employed by NASA as a civil servant at Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA, starting in January 2015. My research interests are the robotic assembly of structures and nonlinear systems, and I am actively working on both of these areas. Before this, I was at the University of Colorado at Boulder from August 2010 to December 2014, earning my Masters and PhD in Computer Science. Prior to grad school, I worked at FAAC Incorporated as an engineer from May 2007 to July 2010. I earned my BSE in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan, attending from August 2003 to April 2007. Going way back, I hail from Fraser, Michigan.
