Tim is pursuing a PhD in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE) at the University of Pennsylvania. He focuses on dynamic locomotive behaviors for quadrupedal robots. Prior to his work at Kod*Lab, Tim earned his B. S. in Engineering from Swarthmore College in 2019, focusing on electronic and embedded systems.

Research Interests

Tim’s current research focuses on using low degree-of-freedom templates to perform dynamic maneuvers with high degree-of-freedom robots. Most of these templates are defined in the sagittal plane, but Tim is looking for ways to relax this restriction to achieve spatial behaviors that retain the compositional and stability properties of their planar relatives. He is also interested in exploring what roboticists can learn from quadrupedal running in animals.
