About Me

I am a software engineer and project manager at Maritime Robotics AS.

My research interests are in aquatic robotics, autonomous systems, multi-robot coordination, adaptive sampling, and environmental monitoring.

For code, including MOOS-IvP behaviors and processes, see my Github.

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the Robotic Embedded Systems Lab at USC. While there, I did internships at the Army Research Laboratory (2016), Amazon Robotics (2015), and at ATLAS Elektronik (2014).
Before I came to USC, I worked for three years at the NATO STO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE, formerly NATO Undersea Research Centre - NURC), on behavior and simulation/mission development & testing for autonomous underwater vehicles using the MOOS-IvP middleware (2009 - 2012).
I obtained a BSc and MSc in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen.
