I am an assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics (MEM) department, and Computer Science and Engineering (courtesy) at Lehigh University.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral associate in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS), and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). I obtained his PhD in 2016 from the Division of Systems Engineering at Boston University, where I worked in the Hybrid and Networked Systems (HyNeSs) Group of the BU Robotics Laboratory. I obtained a BS degree in Computer Science in 2009, a MEng in Intelligent Control Systems in 2011, and a second PhD in Systems Engineering in 2015, all from the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers, Politehnica University of Bucharest.
My research goal is to enable robot autonomy via scalable automated synthesis of explainable plans using motion planning and machine learning. My work employs techniques from sampling-based motion planning, formal methods, automata and graph theory, optimization, and control theory.
