Biography

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Washington University in St. Louis (USA) in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, working with Prof. Bruno Sinopoli. I received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering-Control from University of Tehran (Iran) in 2016. From 2017 to 2019, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Free University of Brussels (Belgium) in the Department of Control Engineering and System Analysis, working with Prof. Emanuele Garone. From November 2018 to December 2018, I was a visiting researcher at University of British Columbia (Canada) in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, working with Prof. Guy A. Dumont.

My research focuses on safety, robustness, and long-term autonomy of autonomous cyber- physical systems, relying on tools drawn from areas such as control and systems theory, artificial intelligence, learning-based control, data-driven control, and optimization theory. Applications include autonomous robots, autonomous driving, unmanned aerial vehicles, autonomous energy systems, video streaming applications, and autonomous drug delivery systems.
