Personal profile

Research interests

My research work investigates building novel miniaturized robotic swarms and algorithmic frameworks that enable sensing, surveying, and inspection applications. My research is applied and interdisciplinary, spanning the fields of mechatronics, electronics, embedded systems, embedded artificial intelligence and machine learning, and distributed systems. I envision my research to produce novel surface, aquatic, and aerial miniaturized robot swarms and small-scale intelligent devices that can both serve as tools for basic research and also benefit several commercially promising applications in domains such as inspection of complex structures, environmental monitoring, space exploration, and search-and-rescue robot swarms.
