Inspection Robotics
My work with inspection robotics starts with research at Rice University at the RiSYS lab with Professor Fathi Ghorbel. During this tenure, I focused on pipe inspection robotics using internal and external methods. These methods primarily involve magnetic flux leakage (MFL) to detect changes in ferromagnetic structures.

Internal Inspection Robot
Rice, 2008
An internal robot to inspect 2.5" steel pipe for oilfield applications. The robot uses Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) sensors to measure defect severity in ferromagnetic pipes.
External MFL Solenoid
Rice, 2009
An external solenoid coil inspection system to inspect 1-5" steel pipe for oilfield applications. The solenoid generates a variable magnetic field and measures Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) sensors for pipe defects or B-H characteristics.
