I grew up mostly in Oregon and Washington. I went to the University of Oregon for two years before transferring to the Mechanical Engineering department at MIT. I then went to Stanford to get my masters in Mechanical Engineering in 1992. I then worked at Convolve, Inc. for 2 1/2 years before returning to MIT to work on a Ph.D. I finished my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in June 97. The title of my thesis was, Command Generation for Flexible Systems. I started as an assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering department at Georgia Tech in the Fall of 1998.


I work on the dynamics and control of flexible structures. Most of my work focuses on feedforward techniques that generate special command profiles. The command profiles move a flexible system from one place to another without residual vibration. This allows machines to move faster, more accurately, and, in general, make a lot more stuff. For more information, see our research group's homepage at Georgia Tech, or the Input Shaping home page.
