Andy Bardagjy is a second year masters student at the MIT Media Lab where he develops novel imaging and display technologies. When he is not toiling over his research, he is probably teaching, building robots, taking photos, or building dinosaurs.
During his time at Georgia Tech he worked at the Georgia Tech Research Institute in the Electro-Optical Systems Lab in the Intelligent Sensors and Imaging Systems Group and in the Remote Sensing Group. At GTRI he developed novel hyper and multi-spectral, low light, and infrared imaging systems, algorithms for the Improved Night Vision Device, foliage reconstruction and buried landmine detection. In addition, he worked with Professor Frank Dellaert where he developed computational photography sensors for three dimensional tracking and simultaneous mapping and localization (SLAM) applications. He also served as the team leader of the Georgia Tech RoboJackets RoboCup Small Size Team where he oversaw the development a team of robots which play autonomous soccer. Additionally, he directed the development of mechanical, electrical, autonomy and perception systems for several large unmanned underwater vehicles at the Georgia Tech Robotics and Intelligent Machines center. Finally, he served as the session coordinator for the RoboJackets Technology Enrichment Sessions where he developed and taught robotics curriculum to over 150 high school students representing nearly twenty high schools.
Recently, he was awarded the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship to support his graduate studies. Previously he was awarded the National Consortium for Measures and Signatures Intelligence Award (twice). He is an Eagle Scout, an Intel Opportunity Scholar, and an NSF FAST Award recipient. He is a member of IEEE, APS, and Eta Kappa Nu.
