I teach and conduct research to solve problems that will make the world better: safer, healthier, and happier. Working with undergraduates, graduate students, post-docs, and other faculty, we develop robots to inspect trees for invasive insect pests, autonomous boats for monitoring lakes, or medical imaging to improve cancer and heart disease diagnoses and treatment. I In my spare time I like to hike, bike, ski, canoe, and play frisbee.
