My research group works in the area of estimation theory and control for autonomous and semi-autonomous systems, with a special emphasis on robotics and aerospace applications. Specific research areas include sensor fusion and probabilistic perception, control and planning in the presence of uncertainties, human decision modeling, and human-robot interaction.

I co-direct the Autonomous Systems Lab with Prof. Hadas Kress Gazit.  The ASL wiki includes most of the hardware and undergraduate/Masters of Engineering projects, whereas this wiki focuses on the research of my group.
