Machine Metabolism Research (Finally) Published in IEEE Robotics and Automation Magazine
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!
Looking Back – A (Lengthy) Reflection on Five Years in Academia
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.
Machine Metabolism Robot Meets the World
I recently released a video demonstration of the autonomous structure reconfiguring “metabolic machine” that I designed along with Franz Nigl, Shuguang Li, and Hod Lipson in Cornell’s Creative Machines Lab. The paper will be published in IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine soon.
CUSD’s Sustainability Research Facility Renderings
Cornell University Sustainable Design has recently completed renders of our proposed on-campus interdisciplinary sustainability research facility. Now, we’re working hard to make these renders into reality!
Cornell University Sustainable Design
This has been a busy semester! After working on Cornell’s entry into the 2009 Solar Decathlon Competition, several of the team members and I determined that we had the power to do something really amazing with the knowledge we had gained and resources we have available to us at Cornell. […]
Long Time no See…
So, it’s been awhile since I’ve actively updated my blog or my youtube videos. Even my presence on UltimateComputers.net has gone down as of late. As many of you probably know, I’m currently in my sophomore year at Cornell, studying electrical and computer engineering. This semester has been a tremendous[…]
Force Sensor-Controlled Prosthetics Research – FINAL RESULTS AND DOCUMENTS
It’s been quite a while since I finished up with my Prosthetics Research and the Intel Science Talent Search, so I decided it was time for me to get all of my final materials online. Below I’ve included my final research paper, two posters, a powerpoint, and a short slideshow[…]

There are multiple problems associated with myoelectric control, currently the most popular form of prosthetic control. Myoelectrodes are expensive, require extensive processing to remove noise, must sometimes be implanted to receive the best signal, and often receive a noisy signal when used externally. One out of every twenty times, myoelectrodes[…]
