Jack Defay is a rising junior in electrical and computer engineering. 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 as builders of other things to help people and ultimately push the boundaries of what robotic systems can do for society. Along with research, he is involved in the electrical subteam of the CUAir and works for the Rapid Prototyping Lab. Jack hopes to pursue a PhD in robotics and contribute to our understanding of natural and artificial swarms.
