I study distributed algorithms for control, estimation, and learning in groups of autonomous aircraft, autonomous cars, and robots. Here are a few of my current and past research topics:

  • Distributed control for the deployment of aerial camera networks

  • Agile control of quadrotor swarms

  • Monitoring and controlling environmental phenomena with aerial robots

  • Cooperative manipulation with teams of mobile manipulators

  • Trustworthiness, deception, and adversaries in multi-robot systems

  • Human-swarm interfaces

  • Autonomous drone racing

You can read about these topics in more detail by visiting the website of my lab, the Multi-robot Systems Lab (MSL), or by reading some of my papers.
