Thanks for stopping by!


I am a Ph.D. student in the William E. Boeing Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics at the University of Washington and a National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate Research Fellow. I am a member of the Nonlinear Dynamics and Controls Lab under Professor Kristi Morgansen. In addition to my doctoral research, I’m currently working with Vulcan Inc. on the development of Vertical Takeoff and Landing capabilities for conservation drones.

My research explores the dynamics, stability, and control of RoboRay, a shape-controlled robotic system designed to be a node in and underwater wireless sensing network. My previous projects focus largely around hard and software development of small, unmanned aircraft.

On this site, you’ll find information on some of my past projects and publications, as well as some insight into what I’m working on now. If you’d like to send me a message, please feel free to reach out via the contact page.
