I am a tenure-track assistant professor at the EECS department, Cleveland State University. Prior to joining CSU, I was a postdoc at the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University. My advisor was Prof. John M. Dolan. I received my Ph.D. degree from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands under the supervision of Prof. Sicco Verwer and Prof. Jan van den Berg. My research interests are in the intersection of machine learning, control theory, and formal verification towards the goal to enhance security and safety of safety-critical cyber-physical systems whilst deployed in dynamic, uncertain, and adversarial environments.
