I am a second year PhD student in the department of mechanical engineering. I did my undergrad at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore where I majored in mechanical engineering and minored in computer science. I grew up Ames, Iowa.
I am working on creating a teleoperated, force transparent needle manipulator for real-time image guided procedures. Details can be found here: Needle Manipulator
General research interests include:
- Medical Robotics
- Computer Vision and Machine Learning
