I am an Assistant Professor in Industrial Technology at the University of Idaho in Idaho Falls. I am also an Affiliate Faculty with the Department of Computer Science at the University of Idaho.

The scope of my research interests resides at the intersection of the fields of mechatronics and artificial intelligence. My research endeavors revolve around the topics of machine learning, image processing, visual perception and control, and cognitive robotics.

My current research projects involve image processing with application in healthcare for breast cancer detection and in agriculture for crop stress identification in aerial images, and modeling human movements with application in robotics for observational learning from demonstrations and in healthcare for assessment of patient performance in physical rehabilitation.

In the Spring 2020 semester I am teaching Computer Integrated and Robotics Manufacturing Technology and Quality Assurance Organization and Management.
