I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the George Washington University, with courtesy appointment at Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. By contributing to the intersection of control, optimization, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, I develop autonomy and decision support tools for aeronautics, aviation and aerial robotics. My current focus is on safety, efficiency, and scalability of decision making systems in complex, uncertain and dynamic environments. Recent applications include: Air Traffic Control/Management (ATC/M), Airline Operations, UAS Traffic Management (UTM), eVTOL Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and Autonomous Drone Racing (ADR). I am leading the Intelligent Aerospace Systems Lab (IASL). I received my Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering from Purdue University in 2013.
