Jonathan Lee


M.S. Robotics

Carnegie Mellon University

I am a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University working on my M.S. in Robotics. My research interests include robotic perception, mapping, and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

I completed my B.S. in Computer Science at The George Washington University where I was an undergraduate researcher advised by Professor. Peng Wei. Previously, I was an intern at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Sierra Nevada Corporation, and Thales Defense and Security. I was also the Project Manager for GW Design/Build/Fly and built a custom flight data recorder for our remote-control aircraft.

Outside of academics, I enjoy playing tennis and flying remote-control planes.
