Ever since I played with Lego as a little child, I’ve been fascinated with automation, robotics, and teaching machines to be useful in general. Nowadays, I would summarize my passion as the science of efficient machine-comprehensible problem formulation, which I try to apply to estimation and control problems on autonomous drones.
