One of my first memories is of sitting on a train and reading the biography of James Watt, whose invention drove the industrial revolution. Indeed, I have long been fascinated by innovators such as Watt, Thomas Edison, and Benjamin Franklin. More recently, I was amazed to witness the technology changes pioneered by Steve Jobs. I feel a calling to use my passion for science to help create a world that is technologically advanced and convenient, so as to enhance the welfare of people from all walks of life.

 

To reach my full potential as a scientist and put myself in a position to make substantive contributions to the academic community and society as a whole, I am applying to join the robotics institute as a Ph.D. I have done research in a wide variety of areas in autonomous vehicles such as SLAM, perception and motion planning as well as in electrical engineering.

 

In electrical engineering, I have done an integrated circuit for digital phase lock loop, equalizers for through-silicon-via in 3D-IC, and rectennas for wireless charging and energy harvesting. I have also conducted an independent project to build and operate a hexacopter using wireless charging methodology, Arduino radar search systems, and landing mechanisms with infrared tracking. In addition, I have submitted one journal paper and published three conference papers. In each instance, I was astounded by the ubiquity and exciting future of robotics and automated vehicle. I am eager to play my part and leave my mark on the field, and this has led to my decision to apply to the Ph.D. program in Robotics.
