Panel Speaker 1: Erin Sutton, PhD

Guidance and Control Engineer at the JHU Applied Physics Laboratory

Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering 2017, M.S. Mechanical Engineering 2016

Erin Sutton is a mechanical engineer at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. She received a BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Dayton and an MS and a PhD in mechanical engineering from Johns Hopkins University. She spent a year at the Naval Air Systems Command designing flight simulators before joining APL in 2019. Her primary research interest is in enhancing existing guidance and control systems with autonomy, and her recent projects range from hypersonic missile defense to civil space exploration.

 

Panel Speaker 2: Star Kim, PhD

Job title and affiliation: Management Consultant at McKinsey & Company

Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering 2021

Star is an Associate at a global business management consulting firm, McKinsey & Company. At JHU, she worked on personalizing cardiac surgery by creating patient specific vascular conduits at Dr. Axel Krieger’s IMERSE lab. She made a virtual reality software for doctors to design and evaluate conduits for each patient. Her team filed a patent and founded a startup together, which received funding from the State of Maryland. Before joining JHU, she was at the University of Maryland, College Park and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. There, she developed and tested patient specific medical devices and systems such as virtual reality mental therapy and orthopedic surgical cutting guides.

 

Panel Speaker 3: Nicole Ortega, MSE

Senior Robotics and Controls Engineer at Johnson and Johnson, Robotics and Digital Solutions

JHU MSE Robotics 2018, JHU BS in Biomedical Engineering 2016

At Johnson and Johnson Nicole works on the Robotis and Controls team to improve the accuracy of their laparoscopic surgery platform.  Before joining J&J, Nicole worked as a contractor for NASA supporting Gateway and at Think Surgical supporting their next generation knee arthroplasty robot.

 

Panel Speaker 4: Ryan Keating, MSE

Software Engineer at Nuro

BS Mechanical Engineering 2013, MSE Robotics 2014

Bio: After finishing my degrees at JHU, I spent two and a half years working at Carnegie Robotics, where I was primarily involved in the development of a land-mine sweeping robot and an inertial navigation system. Following a brief stint working at SRI International to prototype a sandwich-making robot system (yes, really), I have been working on the perception team at Nuro for the past four and a half years. I’ve had the opportunity to work on various parts of the perception stack over that time period, but my largest contributions have been to our backup autonomy system, our object tracking system, and the evaluation framework we use to validate changes to the perception system.
