I am an Assistant Professor in Virginia Commonwealth University’s Department of Electrical and Computer engineering. My research develops the mathematical principles, algorithms, and computational architectures that enable the safe, reliable deployment of distributed, intelligent cyber-physical systems (CPS). My career spans government, industry, and academic institutions serving in roles across the autonomous CPS systems stack: developer, principal investigator, and educator.
