Hi, I'm Martin. I have an MS and BS from MIT in Mechanical Engineering. Specializing in robotics and mechatronics, I'm a multidisciplined engineer with skills and experiences spanning mechanical and electrical systems, software, and controls.

I also have a passion for sensors, vision-based technologies (augmented/virtual reality, camera systems, computer vision), and entertainment technology (film-making, immersive attractions, experiential story-telling).

I'm currently helping eradicate mosquito-born diseases as a Factory Automation Engineer on Verily's Debug project.

Portfolio

Automated Fuselage Assembly

June 2015 - October 2016

Boeing's large-scale, mobile, multi-robot system that autonomously drills and fastens fuselage panels for 777 aircraft.

Augmented Reality for Manufacturing

October 2015 - December 2016

Using AR for digital work instruction, training, and validation in Boeing's manufacturing plants.

Optical Orientation Sensor for Underwater Robot

September 2012 - May 2014

My graduate research on a camera-laser system to measure distance and angular rotations, for autonomous weld-line inspection.

Underwater Nuclear Inspection Robot

February 2011 – May 2012

My undergraduate research involved designing a small, appendage-free, submersible robot to visually inspect nuclear reactors.

Hand Scanner, Interactive Sci-Fi Room

March - May 2014

My team and I won a contract from 5Wits to design a futuristic, interactive adventure room.

Autonomous Ball Robot

January 2012

This robot collects balls and launches them over a wall to the opponent’s side of the field. With help from my EE and CS teammates, we came in 1st out of 9 other teams.

Web Design

March 2014

I started learning web design for my graduate product design class. We were required to submit assignments in the form of websites.

Name Card

February 2014

A kinetic name card I made for my product design class, based on the mechanical camshaft toys.

Jumping Robot

October - December 2013

A robot to study how the time delay between kicking the front and hind legs might maximize the jump height of a quadruped.

Mannequin Arm and Legs

October 2013

As a Teaching Assistant for the Intro to Robotics class, I modelled and printed a pair of legs and arms for the students to control.

Beverage Recognition

April – May 2013

An activity recognition program that determines which drink a person is preparing. It combines logical and probabilistic reasoning.

Ascent - Wheelchair Assist

October - December 2011

A manual wheelchair with a power assist. The hand rims measure user-applied torque and activate two powertrains when necessary.

Forget-Me-Not

October 2011

A place-mat for your important, small-sized items (keys, phone, a letter to mail). When leaving the house, the system alerts you if anything was forgotten.

Yo-yo

October - December 2010

Every MIT mechanical engineer makes a yo-yo consisting of injection-molded inner-hubs and outer-rings and a thermoformed plate.

Autonomous Pipe-Plugging Robot

October – November 2010

An autonomous robot that scans the ground beneath it, locates a damaged pipe, and inserts a plug. This team competition was inspired by the BP oil spill.
