I am teaching a robot manipulation course at Brandeis in the winter and spring of 2020 as an Adjunct Faculty. Basically, I will be synthesizing robot statics and kinematics, robot dynamics and control, along with deep reinforcement learning for trajectory optimization. I will strive to have all lecture notes and software available on the RBOT250 website to the extent that my employer allows. November 7, 2019
I have successfully defended my PhD Thesis. Thanks to the mentors I worked with during my graduate program, viz., Steve B. Jiang, and Nick Gans, and my dissertation committee members: Mark Spong, T. Summers, Y. Tadesse and D. Bhatia. May 16, 2019
I will be pitching my start-up idea to VCs in Vancouver in October. Yeah, sure. Come in and argue! August 1, 2017

Strava Activities Summary

Regular mortal on two wheels hoping to someday be a world champ here. As often as I can get away from the lab, I like to pedal the metals of my bike, often logging approximately 120 miles a week during cycling season (riding rain or shine, hell or highwater during the cycling season). I ride in the parching heats of sultry Texas, the blustering cold winds of the Midwest and the Eastern Seaboard. In the winter, I get sloppy with my usual ride schedule and pile on more fat :-). States where I have ridden so far include Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. Below is a screenshot of my recent activities summary. Feel free to follow me on Strava as I pursue life, liberty and the trails!
