My current doctoral research focuses on geometric constraint inference and telerobotic shared control. More detail can be found at Wisconsin Robotics. Some of my non-research related projects can be found below.
Senior Design project focused on budget thermal regulation for residential espresso maker. Designed theoretical finned boiler for optimized heat transfer. Prototyped high-power in-line preheater and PID controller, bringing the operating temperature drop-off of the machine from 19.6F to 4.5F (comparable to a high-end commercial machine). Recipient of the O'Leary Design Award for outstanding contribution in the area of design.
Prototyped web service communication on LAN based on a raspberry pi invoking a service built on a separate machine. First built a SOAP Java web service in Eclipse EE that records request and uses File IO to store off a TXT log file. Stood up VM Apache Tomcat 8.5 to host service. Developed simple python listener in raspberry pi to look for button input and call SOAP service using suds-jurko.
