Current Research:

    My current research is multi-robot systems for environmental operations. First, I am interested in multi-robot rendezvous control, which intends to gather a team of robots at a specific location in an unknown and cluttered environment, with limited communication and bounded velocity. To extend the research scope, I develop a strategy for multi-robot multi-point rendezvous with Dr. Parasuraman, based on a hierarchical rendezvous mechanism. Currently, I am working on multi-robot collective coverage control for environmental operations such as algae harvesting, oil spill clean up, etc.
