I have had the privilege to create and work with a number of world-class robotic systems over the years, from one of the worlds first fully autonomous tour guides in museums, to a number of NASA’s advanced robotic platforms. My most recent work is described in the posts below.

For older projects, you can read the various techinal papers I’ve published on robotics topics.

You can also see some pictures of NASA robots used during a Robotic Field Test I participated in a few years ago on my Robotics Photo Gallery.

Currently I am a Senior Robotics Researcher at NASA Ames Research Center, in the Intelligent Robotics Group, which is part of the Intelligent Systems Division. I am employed by Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies.
