My current research interest is in distributed robust and optimal control, dynamical networks, state-dependent queueing systems, and incentive design, with applications in infrastructure (e.g., transportation, power) and robotic (e.g., automated vehicles, multi-agent) systems.

Before joining USC, I was a research scientist in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at MIT. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Santa Barbara.



Ph.D. Student Opening: I am looking for (at least) one Ph.D. student in the areas mentioned above. More details about my research interests can be obtained from my publications. Note that I advise students from CEE, EE and ISE departments.
