The Biorobotics Lab is one of Carnegie Mellon’s largest robotics research labs and ranks among the most cutting edge in the world. Famous for it’s modular snake robot that can climb poles for search and rescue and pipe inspection tasks, the lab has since branched out to tackle some of the world’s most challenging problems with robots. Dr. Howie Choset and Dr. Matthew Travers are the leading research professors and the lab’s website can be found here.
I joined the lab as a research assistant during my first semester freshman year in fall of 2014. Since then I have acted as project lead for several projects, an undergraduate research fellow, a Master’s student, and one of the lab’s top personnel. Below are a few of the key projects I have worked on in the last 5 years as a student in the lab.
