Stewart Jamieson

PhD Student

I am a graduate student in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program in Applied Ocean Science and Engineering. I am pursuing the development of a multi-robot system that can autonomously explore and build semantics maps of environments, such as the ocean, where communication is limited. I am co-supervised by Dr. Yogesh Girdhar.
