Mark's Homepage

I am currently a Ph.D. student studying Computer Science at Arizona State University. I also work as a Research Associate in Prof. Heni Ben Amor's Interactive Robotics Laboratory, in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering (CIDSE), one of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at ASU.

The Interactive Robotics Lab at ASU focuses on basic research in Robotics, Human Interaction, Automation, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Artificial Intelligence. My current research involves deep predictive networks for assisted and autonomous driving.

Prior to starting my Ph.D. program, I worked as an attorney for fifteen years, focusing on patents and litigation. I have drafted, prosecuted, and litigated patents in various computer-related arts, although my favorite was probably processor architecture.
