My dissertation research focused on micro robotics, manipulation, and assembly. At the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility I built microfabricated actuator arrays that implement micro manipulation strategies. More generally I investigated new devices for handling and assembling parts, 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.
