I co-founded Sunn, a startup developing unique lighting solutions that emulate natural sunlight indoors to improve health and reduce energy consumption.
I designed and built a novel lighting system that pipes natural light into any room using fiber optic cables augmented by color-tuned LEDs.
Aracna is an open source quadruped robot for testing evolutionary gait algorithms. I worked on the electronics and embedded software.
I led CUSD’s Sustainability Research Facility team. The project aimed to construct a facility for conducting interdisciplinary sustainability research.
IEEE Robotics & AutomationThis robot emulates the functionality of an enzyme on a protein by attaching to a structure and manipulating it while attached.
As seen on TV!The SudoGlove interprets hand gestures to control hardware or software. I’ve used it to drive RC Cars, synthesize music, and more.
I led electronics development for the the Fab@Home 3D printer. My research focused on developing improved safety systems and a more cohesive system-level design.
This project focused on designing “Programmable Matter” cubes capable of arranging themselves into a desired object when disturbed stochastically in a fluid.
I led the Energy Controls team for Cornell’s entry into the 2009 Solar Decathlon. I oversaw the development of an automation and energy monitoring system.
2008 Intel Talent Search FinalistI developed a cheaper, less invasive method for controlling prosthetic devices by using a force sensor-equipped cast.
