About me. I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania, where I work with Prof. Vijay Kumar. I completed my PhD at EPFL, Switzerland, under the direction of Prof. Alcherio Martinoli.
Research. My goal is to build resilient heterogeneous robotic teams and systems by ensuring the integrity of interaction, collaboration and coordination mechanisms, and by providing resilience to environmental disruptions and misleading sensory information. I take a holistic approach, by jointly considering (i) abstractions of robotic interactions, (ii) precautionary control strategies, and (iii) resilient inference algorithms.
August 2016 – We are organizing a workshop this summer: Heterogeneity, Diversity and Resilience in Multi-Robot Systems
July 2016 – Our work is featured in a Bloomberg shoot.
