Introduction

I am currently an Assistant Professor at UW Tacoma, teaching in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering programs in the School of Engineering and Technology. I attended UW Seattle for my undergraduate degree in EE. After that, I attended the University of Notre Dame where I received my master's and PhD in EE. Before joining UWT, I held a research position at the University of Florida.

Current Research

My research has been in the area of control systems and estimation. This includes control of nonlinear systems, hybrid systems, and switched systems. My recent research has focused on human interaction in the control loop. Teaming humans and machines for cooperative control purposes has many advantages but remains a challenge to achieve these advantages in a safe and robust way.
