here has been exciting recent work on folding 2-dimen- sional paper and plastic nets into 3-dimensional robotic exoskeletons. I will be expanding on that line of research and working towards a smart hardware compiler that translates high level specifications into the net to be folded. To that end, I will initially be designing a language agnostic representation of a robot and developing tools to easily allow an open source community to build components together.
I am very interested in applications of software, and have previously worked on high frequency trading at Tower Research Capital and sales modeling and optimization at Counsyl Genomics.
