Responsive Environments Group
Advisor: Joe Paradiso
I joined the Media Lab in 2008. I have an embedded systems background and my interests include low power design and instrumentation. Before joining the group, I worked at a start-up designing solid state lighting products and control systems. I also enjoy designing electronic musical controllers. I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Yale in 2004.
At Yale, my thesis involved low power CMOS circuitry, analog signal processing, and some probability. Along the way, I dabbled in beat detection, tempo estimation, sensor acquisition and instrumentation, computer arithmetic, musical synthesis, and several multimedia projects that explored the relationships between vision, color, and sound.
Professionally, I have done both government and
commercial work. Before the Media Lab, I worked for Renaissance Lighting, a
small start up in
