The Borg Lab

Alex Cunningham

I am a PhD student at Georgia Tech working in the field of robot perception
with a number of research interests, including robotics in challenging environments, robust perception, control of high-performance robots, and probabilistic inference in
graphical models. 

My thesis work is on the DDF-SAM project, focusing on the development of graphical inference techniques for decentralized large-scale multi-robot systems. I'm also an active developer for the GTSAM library.

As of September 2013, I have moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan to finish the remainder of my PhD and get an early start on a post-doctoral research position working with Profs. Ryan Eustice and Edwin Olson of the PeRL and APRIL labs at the Univerisity of Michigan.
