Timothy is a M.S. in Robotics graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University. As a strong proponent for improving society through robotics and automation, he is currently investigating robust state estimation and camera-based navigation for mobile robots with his advisor, Prof. Nathan Michael. Timothy’s research seeks to enable robots to reliably perform safety and inspection campaigns in harsh and hazardous environments. Specifically, he is working towards improving the efficiency of nuclear power by completely automating the precision inspection of nuclear reactors using underwater robots. Prior to CMU, Timothy led the development and maturation of an automated health monitoring software system that was deployed on a Boeing unmanned helicopter. Timothy holds M.S. and B.S. degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Maryland, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Artificial Intelligence from Stanford University. While at Maryland, he authored six publications in experimental rotary-wing aerodynamics for unmanned aerial vehicles.
