Alumnus George Kantor Promoted at Carnegie-Mellon

Alumnus George Kantor was recently promoted to Systems Scientist at Carnegie-Mellon University's Robotics Institute. He continues to work in the Field Robotics Center.

Kantor earned his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland in 1999. His advisor was Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR). At Carnegie-Mellon, Kantor teaches courses in robotic manipulation and controls and conducts research in control, sensing, and navigation for robotic systems.

One of Kantor's recent robotics projects was highlighted in the September 2007 issue of IEEE Spectrum magazine. The article describes a field expedition in which Kantor's research team tested the underwater cave exploring robot they developed as part of the Deep Phreatic Thermal Explorer (DEPTHX) project. Kantor gave a talk on DEPTHX at ISR in February 2006.
