• Multi-robot control with ADMM

    For my class project for AA277 Multi-robot Control with Dr. Mac Schwager Taylor Howell and I extended the trajectory optimization solver we developed to solve a trajectory optimization problem for a team of quadrotors lifting a slung load using ADMM. The result was an algorithm with approximately constant complexity in...


  • 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...
