About me

I am a Ph.D student at the department of Automatic Control since March 2017. I am working on an SSF-project related to the inventorying of supermarkets, but am also affiliated with WASP, ELLIIT, and currently working as a part-time consultant for MERL in Boston.

My main research topics concern nonlinear control and estimation theory, primarily pertaining to quad-rotor UAVs. Specifically,I work on Lyapunov theory for cascaded systems, and its application in designing low-level controllers with global uniform stability properties for the UAVs. I also work on more general estimation theory, specifically on exploiting beneficial structure in Rao-Blackwellized particle filtering and linear-regression Kalman filtering. I have also worked on motion planning and motion feasibility problems in the past, and my research output can be found below.
