I’m an engineer because I believe that engineers have a unique ability to touch the lives of millions of people by developing technologies that shape the human experience. In this promotional video for my alma mater, Cornell University, I explain why that philosophy is so important to me.
Although I finished my metabolic machine research about two years ago, the journal paper that I co-authored on the topic was just published in IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine this past month. Give it a read!
I’m done with academia, and I’m starting a new chapter in my life. In this first part of a two-part blog posting, I’d like to take some time to reflect on my experiences at Cornell over the last five years.
My friends and I built an FPGA Hardware-based AI capable of playing the Super Mario Bros. video game in real-time using visual input from an original NES.
I recently returned from a trip to India, where I was invited to present some of my research from Cornell’s Creative Machines Lab at the 2013 Techkriti Festival at IIT Kanpur. I was joined by astronauts, TV hosts, world-famous architects, and other students from around the world.
I recently completed an epic, once-in-a-lifetime cross-country bus trip from Ithaca, NY to San Francisco, CA. We stopped at six schools along the way to pick up other college students, and we led educational workshops for K-12 schools at each stop to teach students about various aspects of sustainability. The tour ended in San Francisco where I attended the GreenBuild Conference and Expo.
Cornell University Sustainable Design and the US Green Building Council have partnered up to organize a cross-country bus tour. The tour started at Cornell University and will end at the International GreenBuild Conference and Expo in San Francisco, California. Along the way, I, along with other CUSD members and college students from around the country will be teaching K-12 students about the importance of sustainable design.
