About me:

I am currently a postdoctoral associate in the Aerospace Controls Laboratory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas (2018). I have a MS degree in Mathematics (2018) and a MS degree in Electrical Engineering from UT Dallas (2013), and a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from IKIU, Iran (2010).

My research interests are in the fields of distributed systems, controls, robotics, and computer vision. In particular, I'm interested in using visual feedback to allow a team of robots collaboratively navigate and map an unknown environment. Images taken by an onboard camera can be used to estimate the robot's motion, localize it in the environment, and measure the relative location of the neighboring robots. Distributed control strategies can use this local information for navigation, where although robots plan their motion individually, their collective behavior leads to the desired objective.

Our papers, code, and related videos are available on this website. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
