He holds a Ph.D. and M.S. in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon, and a B.S.E. from the University of Michigan.
Micol has spent the majority of her career developing machine learning approaches for understanding complex interactions among traffic actors. At Velo, she is excited to continue thinking about these problems while placing bicyclists and other vulnerable road users front and center. Micol was previously with Uber ATG and most recently at Aurora Innovation, where she led teams in Prediction and Motion Planning working on core models for intent prediction and discrete decision-making. She holds a Ph.D. in Machine Learning from Carnegie Mellon University and an M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University.
