Ashutosh Trivedi's research interests lie at the intersection of computer science, control theory, and machine learning. His research focuses on applying rigorous mathematical reasoning techniques to design and analyze safe and secure cyber-physical systems (CPS) with guaranteed performance. Ashutosh investigates foundational issues (decidability, undecidability, computational complexity, and efficient algorithms) related to modeling and analysis of learning-enabled CPS as well as practically focused tools that can be used by practitioners to analyze large systems at scale. The interplay between deep fundamental problems and their applications to building safe and secure systems have produced solutions for many interesting theoretical challenges as well as tools that can analyze CPS at scale.
