for the robotic marionette project.
I am currently interested in creating robust software and hardware for the optimal control of underactuated, lowly-damped systems with the specific application of robotic control of classical stringed marionettes. The majority of my PhD research has been dedicated to developing a robotic hardware system for actuating the marionettes. I have spent several summers in California working on the system's development with collaborators at Disney Research. I am now working on generating and implementing computationally efficient techniques for controlling the system.
