Agenda: 2011/11/15 T

  • Interviews: Done! Microsoft gave me an offer. Waiting to hear from Google.
  • CS148: What do we need to do?
  • Classes: Working on coursework this week. I might just try to push all my final projects out before Thanksgiving, so that I have 3 weeks of pure research after that before Christmas break.
  • Research: On track to restart at will. I sent my committee my webpage, including all publications and videos I have. Also, any wish lists for interesting things should I make the Turtlebot/PR2 do?

Agenda: 2011/11/02 T

  • Facebook gave me an offer; finishing stack of interviews now. Last interview is on Nov. 15.
  • CS148: On track to release subsumption Friday. Have not begun work on inverse kinematics yet.
  • Classes bogging me down a bit, but I'm still afloat.
  • Need to choose classes for next semester. Fulfilling PhD candidacy requirements and nothing more.
  • Research on track to restart mid-November. The plan is to ground lots of stuff using RFN and then to submit the results of that to R:SS.

Agenda: 2011/10/25 T

  • Current priorities:
    • Robotics (cs148) TAing
    • Job applications and interviews
    • Stay afloat in classes.
  • If Facebook gives me a job offer, my application scope narrows considerably. If not, I'm going to be bogged down until Dec. 1 with the application process.

Agenda: 2011/10/04 T

  • Current priorities:
    • Robotics (cs148) TAing
    • Job applications and interviews
    • Stay afloat in classes.
    • Will return to research after job season ends (late October?). But I'm going to overstretch myself if I try to do this now; it would result both in less job opportunities (and possibly more searching next semester) and not much research done anyway.
  • cs148
    • Looking into how to swap the global planner.
