I’m a PhD candidate at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) and the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. I work with Prof. Sertac Karaman in the Autonomy and Embedded Robotics Accelerated (AERA) group.
My research interests are in robotics, motion planning, and control. I am particularly interested in leveraging methods from robust control theory and differential games to safely bring fast and highly-maneuverable robots out of research labs and into the real world.
August 2021 MIT News published an article about our research on multi-fidelity trajectory optimization: MIT News.
August 2021 Our AIAA Aviation 2021 paper on Global Trajectory-tracking Control for a Tailsitter Flying Wing in Agile Uncoordinated Flight has been awarded Best Student Paper in V/STOL Aircraft Systems!
