I am a senior researcher (senior postdoctoral scholar) at the Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies (CAST), NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, where I use control, optimization, and information theories to address problems in artificial intelligence, leading to autonomous systems (in particular robotic and space systems) with privacy, safety, and performance guarantees. I am also a member of AMBER Lab in the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering and Control and Dynamical Systems as part of the Department of Computing + Mathematical Sciences.

I finished my DPhil (Ph.D.) in Engineering (Control Systems and Aeronautics) in October 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 the University of Texas at Austin.
