Research interests

Details of my research area:

  • Dynamic programming, reinforcement learning, battery scheduling, path planning and obstacle avoidance.
  • Optimal control: Developing convex optimization tools to solve the Hamilton Jacobi Bellman (HJB) PDE.
  • Nonlinear systems analysis: Approximating regions of attraction, maximal invariant sets, reachable sets and attractor sets.
  • Sum-of-Squares (SOS) programming.
