Research Statement

The development of novel parameter identification and state estimation techniques for nonlinear systems, with a focus on systems related to underwater robotics and oceanography. My research employs the methodology of: (i) collaborating with the engineering and oceanographic community to identify relevant state estimation and parameter identification problems; (ii) applying my background in systems theory, sensors, and oceanography to develop novel analytical solutions to these problems; and (iii) experimentally implementing these methodologies to advance the capabilities of underwater robots or improve our knowledge of oceanographic processes. Projects include the development of in-situ calibration techniques for navigation sensor calibration, dynamic model-based nonlinear state estimators for underwater robot navigation, and exploiting advances in underwater vehicle navigation to obtain fine spatial resolution gravity maps.
