I am interested in both the theoretical and application sides of my field of study. My interests include dynamics, control theory, game theory, systems, and formal methods with applications in robotics, particularly, motion planning, strategy synthesis, model checking, hybrid systems, and human-robot interaction. The main theme of my work is safety and soundness, and the emphasis is on safe autonomy through correct-by-construction algorithmic approaches. In my research, I integrate control theory and formal methods to form powerful frameworks that enable autonomy in achieving complex tasks through high-level decision making with the awareness of low-level complexities and constraints of the physical systems.

ASEN 4018 - Senior Projects 1: Design Synthesis
Focuses on the synthesis of technical knowledge, project management, design process, leadership, and communications within a team environment. Students progress through the design process beginning with requirements development, then preliminary design and culminating with critical design. Offered fall only.
ASEN 4028 - Senior Projects 2: Design Practicum
Focuses on the fabrication, integration, verification and validation of designs produced in ASEN 4018. Students work within the same teams from ASEN 4018. Offered spring only.
