My research broadly lies at the intersection of probabilistic perception, state estimation and planning, both for single and distributed multi-agent autonomous systems. I am interested in enabling a reliable, accurate and on-line operation in complex scenarios, particularly focusing on operation in uncertain, partially unknown and dynamic environments. Accordingly, my research interests include autonomous navigation and mapping, consistent distributed information fusion, belief-space planning and active sensing, distributed robust perception, inference with probabilistic graphical models, vision-aided navigation (VAN) and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM).
Prior to joining the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion in July 2014, I was a postdoctoral associate fellow at the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (between 2012 and 2014). At IRIM, I worked in Frank Dellaert‘s research group on several topics that combined mobile robotics and computer vision. I received my PhD (2011) in Aerospace Engineering from the Technion under the guidance of Pini Gurfil, Ehud Rivlin and Hector Rotstein. I also hold B.A. (Cum Laude) and B.Sc. (Summa Cum Laude) degrees in Computer Science and Aerospace Engineering, respectively, both awarded by the Technion in 2002.
