Terry Lu


I am Terry (Jiating) Lu, a college student at the University of Southern California pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. I will graduate in May 2023. I started DIYing robots in my second year in high school as I sought to challenge myself to design motion and control algorithms for 8-legged robots. I am interested in designing Arduino based robots and circuits, as well as Linux boards and systems.
