About Me

mwhite [at] seas [dot] upenn [dot] edu

My name is Mackenzie White and I am currently a PhD Candidate in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the GRASP Lab at the University of Pennsylvania. My advisors are Professor Daniel E. Koditschek, the Alfred Fitler Moore Professor and Department Chair of the Electrical & Systems Engineering Department and Professor Kostas Daniilidis, Director of the GRASP Lab.

I graduated with Distinction from the United States Naval Academy in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Systems Engineering. I was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps and am currently studying at Penn as part of the Marine Corps’ Advanced Degree Program.

I have been named a John J. McMullen Fellow for the 2008–2009 school year.
