Georgia Institute of Technology


I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Decision and Control Laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology. My advisor is Sam Coogan. Prior to that, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Center for Control, Dynamical Systems, and Computation at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). My supervisor at UCSB was Francesco Bullo. I did my PhD in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Queen's University under supervison of Andrew Lewis.
