Lucas K Watson

A rising roboticist, researcher, and maker. Interested in the applications of research, particularly in robotics and acoustics.

Who I am.

I'm a student seeking to learn about the physical world. I'm pursuing a double degree in Mechanical Engineering and Physics, and have focused my course work in acoustics, robotics, and controls.

Interests.

Chiefly, I'm interested in physical design and software that controls hardware at a high level (i.e. robotics, controls).

I enjoy working on various personal projects in IoT, machine vision, 3D printing, robotics, and more.

My research interests lie in robotic perception and acoustics.

I also co-produce a podcast, play the clarinet, and enjoy photography (especially film).
