Welcome to Sawyer Fuller and Sam Burden, who just arrived at UW. Sawyer joined the ME Department and does very cool work on insect-scale robots, and Sam is now with the EE Department working on sensorimotor and neuromechanical control. In Spring, Sergey Levine will join CSE in Spring 2016, continuing his work on deep learning for robot control and perception.
