Research Interests

    I am interested in finding elegant control solutions for interesting (underactuated, stochastic, and/or difficult to model) dynamical systems that I can build and experiment with. I'm particularly interested in finding connections between mechanics (especially non-smooth mechanics) and optimization theory which enable formal analysis and control design for complex mechanical systems. These days I am primarily interested in bringing the rigor of systems theory to robot manipulation. Please see the description of the Robot Locomotion Group for more information.
