Research Interests

I am interested in applications of robotics and artificial intelligence in future transportation. In particular, I am working on analysis and optimization for large-scale mobility-on-demand systems. See the website of  Smart Urban Mobility research cluster for more details.

My research interests include topics related to artificial intelligence, transportation, robotics and multi-agent systems such as:
