Hi! My name is Alex Baucom and I am passionate about science, engineering, and robotics. I love learning, tinkering, and building and hope to one day design robots and systems to benefit humanity. Whether that be search and rescue applications, space or ocean exploration, driverless cars, or cancer-fighting nano-robots, I want to have a part in developing technologies that will save lives and help further our understanding of the universe.
On a more personal note, I was born and raised in Ventura, CA and went on to get a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Upon graduating I got married to my beautiful wife Ashley and moved to Philadelphia, PA to continue my education at the University of Pennsylvania where I am currently pursuing a Master's Degree in Robotics at the GRASP Lab.
In my free time I enjoy reading, playing board games, solving crazy Project Euler problems, building Lego robots, crushing noobs at Rocket League, eating chocolate peanut butter ice cream, tweaking every possible setting on my computer to make it perfect, and reading xkcd.
If you have any questions, comments, or just want to chat, feel free to get in contact with me.
