In August 2012 I joined the groups of Prof. Dusan M. Stipanovic and Prof. Petros G. Voulgaris at the Coordinated Science Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. I am currently working on multi-objective control for multi-agent robotic networks.
In June 2013 and in Fall Semester 2010 I was a visiting scholar at the GRASP Laboratory, School of Engineering and Applied Science, University of Pennsylvania, invited by Prof. Vijay Kumar. My recent work is on distributed task assignment and trajectory generation problems for multi-robot networks, while my earlier work was on the motion coordination and control of multiple nonholonomic robots with visibility and communication constraints in obstacle environments.
In Spring Semester 2009 I was a visiting scholar at the Mechanical Engineering Department, University of Delaware, invited by Ass. Prof. Herbert G. Tanner.
I am particularly interested in complex systems which are subject to motion constraints, under-actuation, restricted sensing/communications and additive disturbances, under multiple control objectives such as dynamic coverage, collision avoidance and connectivity maintenance.
I am generally interested in nonlinear systems and control, motion and path planning, multi-agent systems, decentralized/distributed systems and control, underactuated systems, constrained control, hybrid and switched systems.
