  • Research Interest

    My research interests, in a broad sense, include networked control systems, decentralized/distributed algorithm design for multi-agent systems, nonlinear control theory and robotics. Detailed information is avalible at my CV.

    Current Open Positions

    PhD (Fall 2018) - Probabilistic robotics, mobil sensor deployment in Urban IoT context. (If interested, please apply directly to the MAE department and I will review your application during the review process. You can list me as UCI correspondence. I apologize, but I do not typically respond to email inquiries due to the large number of inquiries.)
