UC Santa Cruz PhD candidate Carlos Isaac Espinosa Ramirez was awarded the Fellowship for Anti-Racism Research (FARR) in June 2021. This fellowship is allowing Carlos to work on a project that is looking both at a important technical issue of the CROSS funded Open Source Autonomous Vehicle Control project as well as key issues about diversity in relevant open source communities. Carlos's project technical side focuses on the dynamic model and control design of a quadrotor using Simulink with mentors Aaron Hunter and Pavlo Vlastos; he is also focusing on issues related to the need to increase diversity and inclusion in open source projects, with a particular focus on open source autonomous vehicle communities. This part of Carlos's work is being mentored by CROSS Assistant Director Stephanie Lieggi.
