Research interests

  • My research focuses on the theory and application of networked unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems. My research interests range across high-level coordination of multiple UAVs, low-level guidance, navigation, and control of single UAVs, and inter-UAV sensing and communication systems. I am also interested in the application of computer vision in UAV systems.
