I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Division of Decision and Control Systems at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. I completed my PhD in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne, and received my B.Sc and M.Sc degrees from the University of Colorado at Boulder in Aerospace Engineering.
My current research focuses on control barrier function methods for constraint satisfaction of nonlinear systems and cooperative robotic manipulation. These methods are tailored towards safe implementation for human intervention/cooperation. My PhD research focused on control of robotic hands to robustly manipulate unknown objects. Previous research was also focused on the path planning of unmanned aircraft to improve on-board efficiency by extracting energy from the wind environment.
My research interests include nonlinear systems, constraint-satisfying control, decentralized/multi-agent systems, and optimal control with applications to robotics and wind-energy systems. Most of my research includes both theoretical contributions and implementation of novel control strategies on hardware. I am proficient in C++, Python, Matlab, and ROS.
