Ryan Sinnet is the CTO and Co-Founder of Miso Robotics. He has spent his career developing novel control methods for robotic systems and has been programming computers and embedded systems for more than 20 years. After studying Electrical Engineering at Caltech, Dr. Sinnet went on to study bipedal robotic walking in graduate school where he was awarded the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. His research in walking has been extended by many other researchers and has been applied to many robots including NASA's Valkyrie robot. In his role at Miso Robotics, Dr. Sinnet has leveraged recent advances in artificial intelligence and formal control methods to create Flippy—Miso's first commercial product—which is able to assist cooks by cooking hamburger patties on commercial grills. Flippy is the first app on Miso's core platform and is currently serving the public at CaliBurger in Pasadena, CA.
