Today was a day for lab cleanup. We all worked together to clean the lab workspace up. I also met with Will to finalize things to do this summer, including coding the coordinate transformations for SuperSCAMP, building it next week, and designing friction and index experiments for the bird perching.
Today is my first day in the lab! This morning, I started with going to the SURI (Summer Undergraduate Research Institute) kickoff meeting, where I met a bunch of other students working on different labs. I then went to the BDML where I met with Dr. Mark Cutkosky where he got me started on lab logistics, including this blog. I also got an overview of the different projects in the lab, and decided to focus on SuperSCAMP and bird perching. After that, I went with Alessandro to test the quad and read papers on how SCAMP worked.
