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.


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).
