Biography

Hi, I’m Brian! I’m a Ph.D. student in MEAM and the GRASP Lab at Penn, where I study planning and control for legged robots. My research interests are broadly at the intersection of model based control design and machine learning.

Before coming to Penn, I received my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University, where I researched in the XYZT lab and interned as a mechanical engineer for Oshkosh Corporation and John Deere.
