I am an Assistant Professor of Engineering and Computer Science at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the director of the Harvard Agile Robotics Laboratory.

My research is about increasing the efficiency, robustness, and versatility of highly dynamic and underactuated robots. Our lab design algorithms that exploit mathematical structure in optimal control problems to improve the computational and physical performance of walking, flying, and manipulating robots. For more information, please check out our publications, videos, or download my CV.
