Assistant Professor, Université de Montréal, Canada CIFAR AI Chair
I am an Assistant Professor Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO) at Université de Montréal.
Previously, I was a Research Scientist in the Distributed Robotics Lab at MIT led by Prof. Daniela Rus. I led the Toyota funded autonomous car project.
Previously, I was a postdoc associate at MIT CSAIL in the marine robotics group led by Prof John Leonard.
The topic of PhD is marine robotics. Specifically, developing adaptive and robust planning and localization strategies for single and multiple autonomous underwater vehicles performing mine countermeasure surveys.
My specific research interests include: autonomous driving, resource constrained inference and planning, cooperative localization, probabilistic path planning, coverage path planning, multi-robot systems, marine robotics, simultaneous localization and mapping.
