• First Paper (in grad school)

    I submitted my first paper in graduate school! Taylor Howell, Dr. Manchester and I submitted our paper on our novel algorithm for trajectory optimization, ALTRO, to IROS 2019. It feels great to have a paper (finally) out the door and hopefully more to quickly follow. Check out our submission in...


  • Website Launch

    Finally got around to launching my personal website! A big thanks to Ben Centra for the great theme.


  • A Tribute to my Father

    On October 21, 2018 my father David Brian Jackson passed away after a 5 month battle with esophogeal cancer. My parents’ thoughts on passing through this experience can be found on their blog. My father impacted me in so many ways, and was perhaps the biggest reason I decided to...


  • Markov Chain Monte Carlo Sampling Estimation

    For AA273 - State Estimation for Aerospace Systems with Dr. Mac Schwager, I worked with John Lambert to implement an algorithm to track multiple targets given noisy state information, using Markov Chain Monte Carlo sampling, and compared its performance to the more canonical multi-hypothesis Kalman filter. Here’s an example of...


  • A Dive into Deep Learning

    My second quarter at Stanford I did a research rotation with Dr. Eric Darve, researching pruning methods for Deep Neural Networks in an effort to make them more computationally efficient. I joined my research with the class project for CS230 with Andrew Ng. My research didn’t quite unfold in time...
