Research Overview

My research focuses on assuring the safety and trustworthiness of cyber-physical systems (CPS), which are smart systems that include co-engineered interacting networks of physical and computational components. I develop modeling and analysis methods for CPS, drawing on formal methods, machine learning, control theory, and human factors. I also work across many different application domains, from autonomous robots, to smart cities, to medical systems. Some of my research group's current projects include:
