Expertise
My current research interests are as follows:
  • Development of models and methods for agile planning in dynamic and uncertain environments;
  • Identification of patterns in sparse data;
  • Computationally efficient techniques for inference in probabilistic graphical models that evolve with time;
  • Model-based and data-driven techniques for diagnosis and prognosis in complex systems;
  • Integration of heuristic search, information theory and stochastic control to solve problems arising in sequential fault diagnosis and testability analysis of electronic systems and electro-mechanical systems arising in aerospace applications;
  • Distributed coordinated scheduling of task graphs;
  • Development of models of distributed information processing in human teams and distributed detection;
  • Fast near-optimal algorithms for multi-user detection in wireless communications;
  • Development of discrete-optimization and statistical estimation techniques to associate data from multiple sensors and to track multiple objects;
  • Multi-objective optimization techniques for engineering applications.
