I am always looking for highly motivated PhD students in the area of controls and dynamical systems, cyber-physical systems, formal methods, machine learning, and transportation systems. I recruit students from both ECE and CEE. If you are interested in joining my group, please apply to the graduate program in either the School of ECE or the School of CEE, depending on your background and interests, and send me an email with a copy of your CV.
