I'll continue the discussion of Lie Groups into the realm of calculus on Lie Groups; we'll finish applying them to the robotic state estimation.
- Apr 2, 2022
I'll introduce concept of Lie Groups and how they can be useful for working with constrained surfaces like rotations; we'll also apply them to the problem of accurate robotic state estimation.

In the last part, I'll show how we can define curvature on a manifold by extending calculus to work on manifolds with the covariant derivative!
- May 30, 2021
In the second part, I'll construct a manifold from scratch and redefine vectors, dual vectors, and tensors on a manifold.
- Feb 10, 2021
As the first in a multi-part series, I'll introduce manifolds and discuss how vectors, dual vectors, and tensors work in a flat, Euclidean space.

Going beyond EKFs, I'll motivate particle filters as a more advanced state estimator that can compensate for the limitations of EKFs.
- Oct 5, 2020
I discuss a fundamental building block for state estimation for a robot: the extended kalman filter (EKF).

I chronicle some lessons learned from my 2.5 years as an undergrad student researcher.
- Jun 24, 2018
I discuss the magic behind attention-based sequence-to-sequence models, the very same models used in tasks such as machine translation.
