After first receiving a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah, Sam received an MS in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Utah in 2014, working in the Telerobotics Lab, with research focusing on magnetic manipulation of medical robotic devices using dynamically controlled permanent magnets. His research interests are in the design and control of robotic and mechatronic devices.
