My research at UNL focused on the development of a miniature in vivo surgical robot capable of performing Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery, where the device gains access to the surgical site through a single small incision. This type of minimally invasive surgery promises to provide significant benefits including reduced hospital stays and recovery times.
During my time at JPL and Honeybee, I was exposed to several flight and research projects that improved my understanding of the design of robots in both the laboratory and real world.
Throughout graduate school, I have taken several project based courses. These projects were helpful in demonstrating the skills that were acquired in those courses. A few of these projects can be seen here.
