Corrected pitch tracking system calibration using navigational filtering. Predicted individual match-up outcomes using hierarchical Bayesian data fusion and Gaussian Processes. Created new metrics including evaluation of swing decisions using maximum expected utility. Conducted aerodynamics research on ball flight mechanics to identify and quantify asymmetrical boundary layer separation.
Thesis work on Fully Bayesian Human-Machine Data Fusion for Robust Dynamic Target Surveillance and Characterization. Assisted in building framework for human operators to classify targets with assistance of machine learning. Made fusion engine able to do individual operator characterization online and allow autonomy to intelligently ask operator for help.
2016-2017Discovery Learning Apprenticeship
Development and integration of audio localization and perception in autonomous systems using Bayesian updates and Gaussian Belief Propagation.
Undergraduate Research Assistant
