Research Area: Robotics

I am interested in designing algorithms for robotic problems that are practically efficient and can provide formal guarantees. Most of my existing work has been in the areas of robot motion planning and coordination. We are currently focusing on the following application domains:

  • collaborative manipulators that can effectively operate and interact in human environments and can impact domains, such as logistics, manufacturing and service robotics;
  • novel platforms that take advantage of compliance, under-actuation and soft material so as to safely operate in unstructured environments and can impact applications, such as space exploration;
  • coordination and modeling of many robots or physically-realistic agents in serious simulations and games that can impact domains, such as transportation planning, urban design and security applications.
