I am an Assistant Professor in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech.
I work in robotics, with a focus on algorithms that enable mobile robots to actively sense and gather data in environments. I also work on developing systems for applications to environmental monitoring. See more about my research here and at my lab's website.
I completed my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota in September 2014. My Ph.D. adviser was Prof. Volkan Isler and I was a part of the Robotic Sensor Networks lab. My Ph.D. dissertation was on Placement and Motion Planning Algorithms for Robotic Sensing Systems.
