A dreamer and maker, Gerry envisions a world where we perceive robots as empowering rather than threatening.
His fascination with robotics and autonomous vehicles was sparked by a 2006 documentary about the DARPA Grand Challenge featuring self-driving cars. While pursuing his undergraduate degree at Duke University, Gerry co-led the Duke Electric Vehicles team that broke the Guinness Book of World Records for vehicle fuel efficiency in 2018 and 2019.
Gerry is a doctoral candidate at the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines at Georgia Tech’s School of Interactive Computing where he studies artist-robot collaboration. He has also authored several publications in the fields of robot art, optimal control, and agricultural robotics.
