Research Interests & Collaborations
My current research interests include the application of dynamical system theory to several areas, including robust adaptive intervention design, image/video processing, and vehicle localization using local measurements. I also have a continuing interest in developing new algorithms for robust and probabilistically robust optimization.
I collaborate with Susan Murphy to develop systematic ways to design robust adaptive interventions. I work with Mario Sznaier and Octavio Camps at Northeastern University aims to develop new tools for robust switched system identification with applications to video and image processing. I also collaborate with Jeffrey Schiano on a project to develop an efficient quadrature resonance explosive detector in the presence of a large amount of interference/noise. Finally, I work with Sean Brennan on a project aimed at vehicle localization from local measurements.
