Howdy! I'm Naveed, a Ph.D. candidate in aerospace engineering at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.
I work on optimal control of nonlinear dynamical systems for my dissertation. I have previously worked on developing reconstruction algorithms for synthetic aperture radars, filtering for distributed state estimation, and was also involved in building the navigation stack for an autonomous warehouse vehicle.
Simply put, I like to develop solutions to make smarter and more efficient systems. My younger self used to call it 'inducing life into machines' :)
