Hi!, My name is Madhur Behl.
I am a Postdoctoral research fellow at the Real-Time and Embedded Sytems Lab (mLab) and the PRECISE Center at the University of Pennsylvania. I recieved my Ph.D. in Electrical and Systems Engineering in 2015 from the University of Pennsylvania. My advisor was Prof. Rahul Mangharam. I recieved my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from UPenn in 2012 and B.E./B.S. degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering in 2009 from PEC University of Technology in India.

I shall never win the nobel prize cuz its the no-behl prize-Madhur Behl

My research develops the foundations of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). This involves finding analytical and practical solutions to problems of modeling, control, simulation, operation and implementation of CPS. Such systems feature tightly coupled computation and communication substrates used to control large, complex, and ”messy” physical plants. CPS are the next generation of time-critical and safety-critical, networked and embedded control systems, in domains spanning from energy-efficient buildings and smart cities, to industrial automation, advanced manufacturing, autonomous vehicles and medical devices. My main research focus is centered on data-driven modeling and control of CPS, which is at the confluence of machine learning, control theory, embedded systems and statistics.
