Jack Defay is a Senior in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. Jack's current research focuses on swarm robotics by examining how natural swarming insects organize. By studying insects, we can better organize the growing networks emerging in our modern world from the internet of things (IoT) to autonomous cars and drones. Jack's interest in robotics stems from the use of robots to do jobs that are impossible or unpleasant for human workers. The complex and dynamic tasks that teams of people do will similarly require teams of robots to accomplish. Along with research, he is involved in the electrical subteam of the CUAir, works for the Rapid Prototyping Lab and serves as a teaching assistant for ECE4760: Design with Microcontrollers. Jack hopes to pursue a PhD in robotics and contribute to our understanding of natural and artificial swarms.
