Research interests in our group include Multi-Agent Systems, Autonomy, Control, Optimization, Learning, and Robotics. Our lab is Autonomous & Intelligent Multi-agent Systems (AIMS) Lab , which aims to investigate autonomy and intelligence for networked systems consisting of multiple unmanned mobile agents, through combination of theories in control, networks, optimizations and artificial intelligence. We are interested in both theoretical research towards novel control algorithms for coordination among a large-network of mobile agents and experimental implementations for improving autonomy and intelligence of the overall networked system. More research details can be found at AIMS Lab.

Positions for Ph.D. and Postdoc. We are very interested in integration of control and learning, robotics, perception-based multi-agent coordination. Students with solid background in mathematics and control as well as hands-on experience in robotics are encouraged to apply.
