Micah was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. Before that he was a postdoc at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and competed with team CoSTAR in the DARPA Subterranean Challenge where his work focused on aerial navigation in challenging, underground environments. Micah received his Ph.D. also from CMU in 2020. His thesis focused on autonomous exploration for mapping of three-dimensional environments as well as perception planning with multi-robot teams.
Micah has been working on tracking and reconstruction of moving agents with groups of aerial robots. This work is relevant to applications such as sports cinematography and capturing wildlife behaviors or improvisational performances.
