Sign up here: ADI will be hosting a lunch with Professor Tony Dear from the CS Department.

About Professor Tony Dear: Professor Dear received his B.S. from UC Berkeley and subsequently went to Carnegie Mellon University to pursue an M.S. and Ph.D in Robotics. In his spare time, Professor Dear continues his graduate research work in robotic locomotion, in particular exploiting underlying system structure to reduce problem complexity in “real” or non-ideal systems. More specifically, he is investigating the utility of geometric mechanics, a beautiful field that combines the abstractions of differential geometry with mechanical theory, in synthesizing a variety of locomotion behaviors.
