Lucas Manuelli

I'm working on my PhD in Computer Science at MIT with Russ Tedrake in the Robot Locomotion Group within CSAIL.

Prior to starting the PhD I worked on the MIT Darpa Robotics Challenge Team doing planning and controls for the Atlas robot.

For some of the projects I work on, my source code is publicly available .
