My dissertation research focused on micro robotics, manipulation, and
At the Cornell Nanofabrication
Facility I built
microfabricated actuator arrays
micro manipulation strategies.
More generally I investigated
new devices for handling and
and manipulation strategies with
programmable force vector fields,
which often rely on the use of geometric algorithms.
I have also worked on
design automation for micro structures.
Earlier work at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, included the development of better graph layout algorithms.
My thesis advisor was Professor Bruce Donald, who is one of the founders and directors of the Cornell Computer Science Robotics and Vision Laboratory. My project was in close collaboration with Professor Noel MacDonald and his research group.
If I am not in my office or the Nano Lab, I may be working out in our Tae Kwon Do club, or you may find me at the Lindseth climbing wall.
