Hi, I'm Fiona. I'm an MEng student at MIT in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. At MIT Sea Grant, I am developing autonomous capabilities for a boat to assist in oyster farming. I am also a Teaching Assistant for an intro to controls class.
I'll be graduating in May, and I'm currently looking for full-time positions in the robotics space. My resesarch and coursework have focused on perception, controls, and robotics.
