To prospective students:

I occasionally seek highly motivated students with solid background in mechanical engineering or related disciplines, and with good computer programming skills. Interesed students should read one or more of our papers, come up with a one-page research plan, and send it along with your CV detailing your past porogramming projects (topics, languages, libraries/framework, dev platforms, etc). This is to help me assessing your research potential in my group, and not to select a research topic should you join my group. Email inquiries without a research plan will most likely be unanswered.
