I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics of Lehigh University.
I completed Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, and was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania before I joined Lehigh.

My research interests are centered around motion planning and control of autonomous, intelligent systems. More specifically, I am interested in applications of topological and geometric methods (algebraic/differential topology, differential/discrete geometry) to the design and analysis of algorithms in robot motion planning, coverage, sensor networks, distributed systems and control. I am, in general, interested in diverse topics involving control theory, graph theory, topology, geometry and applied mathematics.

**Recent news and announcements:**

- A draft of the paper "A Search Algorithm for Simplicial Complexes" is now posted on arXiv.org: http://arxiv.org/abs/1607.07009
- Co-organized the ICRA 2016 workshop on Emerging Topological Techniques in Robotics with Florian T. Pokorny, Subramanian Ramamoorthy and Vijay Kumar. Visit ICRA'16 conference website for registration details.
