Autonomous Multi-Robot Systems

Home | Publications | Teaching | Videos and Media |

I moved to a faculty position at the Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. My new website is here.

Until October 2016 I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab CSAIL of MIT, working with Daniela Rus. I received my Ph.D. degree in robotics from ETH Zurich, under the supervision of Roland Siegwart (ASL). I was also a member of Disney Research Zurich (DRZ).

My main research interest is in motion planning and control of autonomous multi-robot systems, where robots interact with one another and with humans. Towards the smart cities of the future, I develop optimization-based algorithms that span across multiple applications, such as self-driving cars, automated factories, aerial vehicles and mobility on demand.

I am involved in the following projects:

  • Parallel autonomy and autonomous cars, CSAIL-Toyota joint research effort.
  • SMart Adaptive Reliable Teams for Persistent Surveillance SMARTS.
  • Mobile robots on the factory floor, funded by The Boeing Company.
  • Future Urban Mobility, Singapore MIT Aliance for Research and Technology SMART.
