Our research is dedicated to understanding and designing Cyber Physical Systems. CPS is a highly interdisciplinary area and our group works on a variety of topics. One of the main directions we focus on is design of medical devices such as artificial pancreas or pacemakers. Another focal direction is design of bacteria propelled micro robotic swarms for drug delivery purposes. The other direction in our research is climate-aware modeling, analysis, and control for large-scale sustainable energy harvesting in river networks. In general we are interested in fundamental and applied questions related to structure and dynamics of networks.
