Iris Huang


Iris Huang is currently a first year graduate student studying Computer Engineering at University of California, Santa Cruz. She recently graduated from UCSC with a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering as well. As an undergraduate student, she interned at Lucent Sky, Taiwan as a testing engineer. In the summer of her third year, she worked in a Mechanical Dynamic Lab at Osaka University, Japan where she did a research on "Development and Control of Dynamic Snake Robot". In her senior year, Iris, along with four other students designed and manufactured an autonomous cart for their Senior Design Project. For her graudate thesis, she is working in a Robotics and Control lab on network queuing models with Professor Dejan Milutinovic. Iris will be graduating with a Masters degree in June 2019.

Projects and Research

Autonomous Cart

The Autonomous Cart is a year long Senior Design Project where five students worked together from scratch to design and build a cart and its system to autonomously move from point A to point B.

Development and Control of Dynamic Snake Robot

An eight week research done in the Mechanical Dynamic Lab at Osaka University, Japan. We studied the dynamics of a snake robot with 3 links and 2 joints. We also 3D printed and prototyped the snake robot to test the robot movement. A powerpoint presentation can be downloaded in the link below.

Interests and hobbies

In my spare time, I love listening to music and watching all kinds of shows and tv series. When it's winter, I'd go up to the snow and snowboard for days! I also love to travel. I hope to travel around the world some day :)
