Hello! My name is Aaron. I'm an engineer. I recently graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. I love building things: products, companies, teams. I wake up excited for it, and pass out exhausted from it. I strive to achieve the following in my professional life: surround myself with astute, positive, opinionated people; be challenged; improve my team in any way possible; never turn off the light feeling I could have done more; be happy and have fun. In my free time I love: hiking, discovering new recipes, coding, and playing with electronics. Currently I'm building a "segway" from scratch. Below is a sample of some of the projects I've been working on recently.

Projects

Electromyographic and Voice Controlled
Robotic Hand
We Won first place and a nice bottle of wine. Out of 32 project teams in the Fall 2014 EE149 Embedded Systems Class. We were inspired by a recent story of a Haitian orphan getting a 3-D printed prosthesis.

Inverted Pendulum on a Cart
Self-erecting inverted pendulum using feedback control with observer estimation. An inverted pendulum is a pendulum which has its center of mass above its pivot point. Whereas a normal pendulum is stable when hanging downwards, an inverted pendulum is inherently unstable, and must be actively balanced in order to remain upright.
