Developed and implemented a novel algorithm to attack the Multiple Moving
Object Rearrangement problem. Created several ROS modules for the Baxter robot, including
vision, pick-and-place, and real-time Bullet physics simulation integration. Implemented SLAM on
Lego MindStorms EV3. Prepared and executed robotics demos to encourage high-school students
towards robotics and AI.
Held recitation sessions to assist teaching, held office hours for after-class
help for students, invigilated and corrected exams for MATH 203: Intro. to Probability and MATH
306: Statistical Modelling.

Several tools to operate theBaxterrobot using its cameras to identify, localize
and provide visual servoing for pick-and-place operations. Also allows communication with the
Bullet physics engine via ROS to generate the environment it sees in live simulation.
