Christopher Randolph Baker is a graduate student in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon. He is a native Pittsburgher and finished his undergraduate work at Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science in 2002. Often labeled as a "Jack of All Trades", Christopher is highly skilled at mechanics and electronics and excels at software development, especially at the interface between software and hardware. To match his skill set, he is interested in robotics in the broadest sense of the term, from actuation and locomotion up through control systems and into planning and perception.
In addition to the Subterranean Robotics Initiative, Christopher is also working on the Bombardier Guideway Verification Project and is the current developer/curator of the CMU 1394 Digital Camera Driver, which can be found here.
