Hello all! Welcome to another exciting year of ICEX, the International Computer Engineering eXperience program. For those of you who don’t know me, I am an Associate Professor at Harvey Mudd College where I direct research in the Lab for Autonomous and Intelligent Robotics, LAIR.
I have been part of ICEX for 5 years now. In the past, I have helped lead a variety of robotics based research expeditions to Norway and Malta, ( e.g. see last years blog ). This year we are working in Costa Rica, where we plan to use our Autonomous Underwater Vehicles to sample volcanic lakes. Our ultimate goal is to model the CO2 dynamics within these lakes using data collected by the AUVs.
Wish us luck in this new endeavor,
