Research Interests

Large Scale Distributed Predictive Control

The proliferation of networked systems has resulted in increased research as well as practical need for methods of decentralized planning. Furthermore, due to the uncertainty inherent in the environment in which many of these networked systems exist, we must address the problem of Decentralized Planning under Uncertainty. Applications include a modern automated air-traffic control system, intelligent networked vehicles such as unmanned aerial vehicles and even financial engineering.

In particular my research interests include decentralized task allocation and information theoretic control for a collection of agents in an uncertain environment.
