Hello. I'm Chris covert, a designer &
aerospace engineer who studied robotic autonomy at stanford university.
I was also given the opportunity to lead a few fun projects in the recent years including the former Google Lunar XPrize team, Lunar Lion, which aimed to put a student-built lunar lander on the moon, and an international sailplane racing competitor, Project Zephyrus, which aimed to build and fly a full-scale composite human-powered aircraft.
I like to do a lot.
In my free time, I have been published twice in IEEE, given a small TED talk, and won a hackathon. Given that I also like to sleep, I guess I can safely say that I try to cram as much fun into life as possible.
I have a Master's.
I attended Stanford University, studying aeronautics and astronautics with a focus on autonomy, multi-agent control, and machine learning. I also have a B.S. from Penn State, where I was given the honor of graduating at the top of my class.
I like projects.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, I have enough books to fill the Library of Congress. I shoot mostly from my cellphone (those cameras are getting pretty good), but I have used just about every type of camera there is.
I like technology.
Flying drones, building websites, living in Silicon Valley; I like tech. Easy as that.
I like adventure.
I have always been guided by either my two feet or the two wheels on my bike, and it has led me to quite a few adventures. From climbing mountains to hopping between trains, I like to see the unseen and explore the unexplored.
I like photography.
