Laura is pursuing her PhD in Mechanical Engineering, advised by Dr. Vijay Kumar and Dr. Mark Yim. She is interested in path planning, control, and design of autonomous aerial robots and multi-robot systems.
Laura’s research is focused on search-based motion planning for fast flight in cluttered and unstructured environments.
Laura graduated in 2016 with a S.B. in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Prior to starting at Penn, she worked on robotics research in the Control & Autonomous Systems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
