Hannah DeFazio is an R&D Engineer on Kitware’s Computer Vision Team. She has recently graduated from Clarkson University with a B.S. in computer science and a minor in mathematics. While there, Hannah completed her honors thesis on building an assistive robot that can detect falls and intervene with support if it is necessary. Previously, she was a co-op student at Kitware’s headquarters in Clifton Park, where she worked with the Vision team in the early stages of a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) project.
Hannah’s specific field of interest is automation because she enjoys working on projects that are well motivated and help the end-user. Hannah plans to continue her education and work towards earning an M.S. in robotics from Clarkson University.
