Welcome to my website!

I'm currently a doctorate student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. My current research project is on developing hardware and software platforms, designing control systems, and identifying dynamics of autonomous indoor blimps as well as miniature underwater and surface vehicles.

I believe the novel electromechanical design, advanced feedback control, and modern computing technology are tightly coupled process in order to achieve truly superior performance. 

I also seek to leverage the latest advancements in physics, materials, electronics, control theory, and machine learning to enable new system designs with ground-breaking performance.
