I am CEO of the Open Source Robotics Foundation (OSRF), where we develop and drive adoption of open source software in robotics.

Before OSRF, I was Director of Open Source Development at Willow Garage, where we focus primarily on ROS.  Before Willow, I was a computer scientist in the SRI Artificial Intelligence Center. Before that, I was a post-doctoral scholar in Sebastian Thrun‘s group in the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab. And before that, I did my PhD with Maja Matarić in the USC Interaction Lab.
