About Me

Hey! I’m Max, a second year robotics graduate student at Georgia Tech. My research focuses on teaching robots how to control and coordinate themselves. I use deep reinforcement learning to teach teams of heterogeneous robots to coordinate themselves and quadrupedal robots how to navigate in real-world environments. I graduated from Georgia Tech in May 2020 with a degree in electrical engineering and a minor in robotics.

Work Experience

In the Media

I was part of an intern spotlight while working on Mars2020 at the Jet Propulsion Lab.

For Funzies

When I’m not studying robots, I like to play tennis and bake. I’m also a National Parks enthusiast on my jourrney to visiting all the parks.
