Hello there!

I’m Brian Zhang, a PhD student in Robotics at Oregon State. I am currently working on understanding the role of sound in human-robot interaction with Prof. Naomi Fitter in the SHARE Lab, and we have also taught many iterations of “electronics for mechanical engineers” together!

Sorry for the current state of the website – some changes were made to make publication-related content more easily accessible for the future.

I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018 with a BSE in mechanical engineering and a MSE in robotics. There, I worked with Dr. Mark Yim in Modlab.

I am capable in rapid prototyping (lasers & 3D printers), precision manufacturing (mills and lathes, including some CAM), SolidWorks, MATLAB, Python, and Java (including some Android dev).

I also have experience with C, C++, higher education, engineering entrepreneurship, sleeping on airplane pull-out trays, not sleeping when the deadline is approaching, and cooking. I also have a cat!
