Biography (more>>)
Michael Wolf is a researcher in the Advanced Robotics Controls group at JPL. His current work includes algorithm development for path planning, biosignal interpretation, and target tracking, with a focus on probabilistic methods.

Dr. Wolf earned his PhD in the robotics laboratory at Caltech, where he collaborated with neuroscientists to originate new methods to autonomously acquire and track neuronal signals. He also conducted research on navigation and obstacle avoidance for semi-autonomous automobiles. Prior to his graduate work, Dr. Wolf gained six years experience in product management and business development at Silicon Valley software companies.
