Research Interests

My research focuses on developing algorithms and data structures for fundamental robotic perception tasks such as 3D segmentation, reconstruction, and object detection and classification. I investigate the use of applied topology, specifically topological data analysis for processing large datasets. I also work on problems in networked and cloud robotics where the goal is to allow under-resourced robots remote access to computing, data, and learning resources. A portfolio of the software I've developed for my research can be found on GitHub.
