I care for a trustworthy collaborative autonomy in changing, unknown, and adversarial environments. I care for impact on safety-critical applications, such as:

  • multi-target tracking, persistent monitoring, and surveillance;
  • self-navigation in crowded cities or extraterrestrial environments;
  • failure-prone and/or attack-susceptible multi-robot networks.

I aim for a technological convergence between:

  • cyber capabilities for an adaptive distributed intelligence, driven by online learning for perception, communication, planning, and control, (and their co-design), and
  • physical capabilities of novel self-reconfigurable aerial systems.

I build on tools of perception, control, and online learning and optimization to:

  • identify fundamental optimization limits;
  • develop provably optimal algorithms;
  • build novel robotic platforms;
  • apply the research outcomes.
