Howdy! My name is Bryan Boyd. I am currently pursuing a MS degree in Computer Science while participating in the Algorithms & Applications Group of the Parasol Lab, under the direction of Dr. Nancy Amato. I first came to the Parasol Lab during the summer of 2006 as part of the NSF REU program, while an undergraduate at Texas A&M. My senior year at Texas A&M was focused on the development and support of the Campus Navigator application. My research interests include motion planning, robotics, UI design, and machine learning.
