Bio: Hi! My name is Charles, and I’m a graduate student in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, and a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. My research interests lie at the intersection of control theory, optimization, and systems theory in service of building safer and better-performing robots. Before attending MIT, I received my B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA. Outside of the lab, I like to bake bread and climb rocks.
