    My current research interests are micro robotics, manipula­tion, and assembly. At the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility I am building microfabricated actuator arrays that imple­ment micro manipulation strategies. More generally I am interested in new devices for handling and assembling parts, and manipulation strategies with programmable force vector fields, which often rely on the use of geometric algorithms. I have also investigated design automation for micro structures. Earlier work at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, has included the development of better graph layout algorithms. My thesis advisor, Professor Bruce Donald, is one of the founders and directors of the  Cornell Computer Science Robotics and Vision Laboratory. My pro­ject is in close collaboration with Professor Noel MacDonald and his research group. If I am not in my office or the Nano Lab, I may be working out in our Tae Kwon Do club, or you may find me at the Lindseth climbing wall.
