W. Cannon Lewis II
First year Rice CS PhD student
Generally speaking, I am interested in robotic autonomy. At the end of the day, I am fascinated by complex problems that are dangerous or tedious for humans to solve alone. My research incorporates aspects of control theory, statistics, optimization, formal mathematics, and good old computer science. Right now, my research is specifically in the application of reinforcement learning to robotic control and motion planning. Get in touch if you'd like to know more!
