I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Electrical and Systems Engineering (ESE) department at the University of Pennsylvania, working with Prof. Manfred Morari and Prof. George J. Pappas. Prior to that, I obtained my Ph.D. in ESE from UPenn in 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Victor M. Preciado.

Research Interests

Broadly speaking, my research interests are at the intersection of control, optimization, and machine learning. I am interested in addressing emerging challenges in machine learning through the lens of optimization and control. These days I am working on safety and robustness of learning-enabled autonomous systems.

  • Theoretical and Numerical Optimization

  • Machine Learning

  • Dynamical Systems and Control Theory
