If you're interested in our lab, you should send Scott an email containing your CV/resume, unofficial transcript, and a short description of your background and interests. Students with some prior exposure to robotics, control, and/or optimization would be in the best position to potentially contribute to one of our research projects.
Students outside of Harvard
Unfortunately, Scott receives many emails from prospective students or visitors and does not have the bandwidth to answer each of these personally. If you are applying to Harvard SEAS, you should indicate your interest in our lab in your application. We would be happy to hear from you after you've applied! We do not typically host visiting students unless there is a direct connection to our ongoing work and the visitor can remain at Harvard for at least 3 months.
