My research focuses on electric and robotic vehicles. I am interested in combining power conversion with advanced control and optimization methods as a means of achieving high energy efficiency, durability and reliability of energy storage systems. Vehicle automation is another area of my research, with particular emphasis on safe motion planning and resilient control.
