As a researcher in autonomous robotics, I am fascinated by the problem of smoothly interfacing complex machine systems with noisy dynamic environments. I have a special interest in adaptive estimation algorithms which use environmental observations to probabilistically modify the underlying process models.

I believe the ideal machine should combine Newton’s laws of motion with Asimov’s laws of robotics, to better integrate into human society.

In my free time, when I am not reading obscure tracts from project gutenberg, I am an avid gamer and science fiction buff.

Of late, I have also developed an interest in wearable technology, which I believe is the chiral paradigm for autonomous robotics.
