Justin is a second-year MS candidate whose research lies at the intersection of System Safety and Systems Engineering. He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering in 2016 where he worked on numerous robotics projects ranging in size from a small domino-laying robot powered by a Raspberry Pi computer to a John Deere Off-Road utility vehicle powered by a Xilinx FPGA and the Robot Operating System (ROS). After graduating from Olin College, he then worked for four years as a Systems Engineer with nuTonomy, Aptiv and Motional where he developed and tested system architectures for self-driving vehicles and assisted with the development and management of requirements for a variety of vehicle subsystems. Outside of school, he enjoys hiking, camping and kayaking with his wife and 2 dogs whenever the weather permits.
