Research interests

My research interests are broadly in the intersections of systems control, computer science, and robotics. My goal is to bridge control theory and computer science, with applications in autonomous robotic systems. My research has focused on mathematical modeling, control design, learning and optimization of large complex systems composed of interacting agents with discrete, continuous, or hybrid dynamics. The outcomes of my research are being applied in autonomous robots, self-driving vehicles, mobility networks, logistic automation, and smart cities.

Research environment

Our group has extensive collaboration networks with international researchers/students. We are constantly hosting international visitors; some recent visitors include researchers/students from Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands), University of Cagliari (Italy), and University of Toronto (Canada).

Message to international students and young researchers

We welcome and seek to work with motivated students and young researchers, to together create groundbreaking new knowledge and constantly push our understanding forward. If you are interested in our research topics, please contact us (contact information can be found in links below).
