I’m happy to announce that my paper with Jungseok Hong and Junaed Sattar on the Autonomous Diver-Relative Operator Configuration algorithm (ADROC) has been accepted for publication at ICRA 2022! I’m excited to present this work at ICRA, it describes a novel technique for diver approach by and AUV using only monocular vision. This method includes a rough distance estimation method based on biological priors (diver shoulder width) which has been quite interesting to work with. Read more

I’m happy to announce that my paper with Chelsey Edge and Junaed Sattar on the method of robot body language communication method I created: Robot Communication Via Motion (RCVM) has been accepted for publication in an upcoming issue of ACM Transactions on Human-Robot Interaction! This paper is nearly 40 pages, and was a labor of love: three studies are described in this paper including a very arduous evaluation of the effect of viewpoint, message content, and robot domain on the effectiveness of RCVM and other communication methods. The paper will be available at some time in the future at https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3495245 Read more

Teaching Assistant for CSCI 4061: Operating Systems

Undergraduate course, University of Minnesota, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, 2019

In the Spring of 2019, I served as a teaching assistant for CSCI 4061: Operating Systems. My duties included teaching two weekly labs and office hours, proctering and grading exams, and designing, developing, and creating automated grading for one large programming assignment. The class had a total size of some 400 students, and my two labs were comprised of approximately twenty sustends each. Read more

Teaching Assistant for CSCI 5551: Introduction to Intelligent Robotic Systems

Graduate course, University of Minnesota, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, 2020

In the Fall of 2020, I served as a TA for the graduate level course: CSCI 5551: Introduction to Intelligent Robotic Systems. I helped to run the course website, created, administered, and evaluated a programming-based homework on ROS, and taught a lecture on ROS, the Robot Operation System. It was a challenging semester, due to the new online-learning paradigm necessitated by COVID, but it was rewarding nontheless! It was really fun to teach students about ROS and help them to learn real robot programming skills, even without access to real robots. Read more
