Software Design for Physical Devices.

I'm an operations test engineer for Ford Motor Company's Future Tech group. I design test software and hardware solutions for connected and automated vehicle systems.

Previously, I was the lead software/hardware developer for Mcity, a test facility for connected and automated vehicles at the University of Michigan. My research has been focused on developing solutions for smart cities and vehicle test automation. From 2017-2019 I assisted with the Mcity Driverless shuttle project, the first automated shuttle project in the US for consumer research. I lead the design and development of Mcity OS, a hardware/software solution that runs at multiple test facilities (public/private), enabling the creation and orchestration of repeatable smart city infrastructure and vehicle tests.

Outside of the office, I'm usually tinkering with cars, gardening, building things, brewing beer, or playing disc golf.
