I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of New Mexico (UNM). I received my Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and M.S. in applied mathematics from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I earned a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia. I was appointed as MechSE Teaching Fellow at UIUC and named CPS Rising Star by the University of Virginia.

My research interests are in control and optimization, machine learning, and cyber-physical systems (CPS) and their safety-critical applications. I am especially interested in enabling the safe operation of CPS with large uncertainties, such as CPS attacks, unforeseen environments, and faulty models, by integrating resilient estimation, machine learning, and robust adaptive control.
