My research interests lie in the intersection of dynamical systems, robotics, control and machine learning. Specifically, I seek to develop new mathematical and computational tools for resilient (semi-)autonomous robot navigation under uncertain and stochastic effects that arise naturally during robot deployment in real-world settings. Some representative areas of my research include modeling and control of nonlinear uncertain and stochastic systems, uncertainty quantification and probabilistic model validation, as well as motion planning, navigation and control of underactuated small-scale legged and aerial robots under uncertainty.
