I am a senior postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies (CAST) at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA. I use formal methods and control, optimization, and information theories to provide assurances for safety, security, and performance of autonomous systems (in particular, robotic and space systems). In the past few years, I have focused on decision making under uncertainty and partial observation.

At Caltech, I have been privileged to work closely with Professors Aaron D. Ames, Joel W. Burdick, and Richard M. Murray as a member of AMBER Lab in the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering and Control and Dynamical Systems in the Department of Computing + Mathematical Sciences.

I finished my DPhil (Ph.D.) in Engineering (Control Systems and Aeronautics) in November 2016 at the University of Oxford, UK, as a Clarendon Scholar and a member of Keble College. My PhD was followed by research positions at the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at UT Austin.
