My interests include motion planning for single and multi-agent systems and distributed algorithms that enable robotic teams and/or swarms to pool resources in order to solve their common problems. I am particularly interested in applications where the environment is hazardous and/or changing and communication is unreliable. My work involves elements of planning, control, robotics, multi-agent systems, distributed systems, graph theory, computational geometry, machine learning, artificial intelligence, emergent behavior, and stochastic processes.
