Current Work

I am collaboration with the following research groups:

The Barton Research Group

The Human Biomechanics and Control Lab

The S. M. Wu Manufacturing Research Center


My main interest is in the field of sensing, localization, inertial sensors and sensor fusion; with focus on robotics and biomechanics applications. Since 2003 I have been working on solving the problem of indoor personal localization, and have been involved in several research projects developing localization and mapping systems for diverse mobile robot platforms.


A list of my publications, articles and patents can be found here.

Fun stuff

In my spare time I enjoy playing with robots made with LEGO parts. I maintain a website where I describe how to do this.
