Autonomy, Robotics, & Intelligent Algorithms (ARIA) Lab

Lab Mission: We pioneer algorithmic technologies for robust robotic perception & autonomy.

Funded PhD positions:

We have fully-funded PhD positions for students who are interested in robotics, computer vision, or applied machine learning research (application link). ARIA lab is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we encourage all students (particularly female, underrepresented, and minority students) to apply.

Opportunities for Mines (or local) students:


Hands-on robotic experience:

We are looking for volunteers to set up our robots (pictures below). You will work with robots/sensors/equipment and learn to assemble sensors/hardware, set up onboard compute, work with the Robot Operating System (ROS), and run advanced algorithms such as SLAM. 


Research opportunities:

We have openings for Mines BS/MS students with experience or interest in robotics (hardware, software, theory,... ). Take a look at the lab's current projects, reach out to students working with the lab, and submit your application on the join-us page if you like to join the team.


Robotics/SLAM course: 

Dr. Fathian is teaching CSCI 598B "Robotic Mapping & Localization" in Spring 2024, and CSCI 437/507 "Computer Vision" in Fall 2024.
