My name is Jake Huckaby. I am currently a Technical Manager at Universal Robots USA.

I recently completed a PhD at Georgia Tech in the Robotics PhD program. I worked in the Cognitive Robotics Lab in the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines, where I was advised by Dr. Henrik Christensen. My research focused on efficient task programming for robot manipulation tasks.

I earned a Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Tech in spring 2013.

I did my undergraduate work at Brigham Young University in Electrical and Computer Engineering, where I spent a year working on our entry in the DARPA Urban Challenge. This was the experience that motivated me to pursue graduate studies in robotics, and I have been lucky to enjoy working in a variety of different areas in robotics during my academic career.
