Research Interests

My primary research interest is in local and regional motion planning for mobile robots in complex, unstructured environments such as cluttered or rough terrain. Algorithms for planning in full configuration space are increasingly necessary as robots continue to tackle ever more challenging environments. My goal is to defeat the curse of dimensionality by restricting the search space to the set of motions that are dynamically feasible for a particular vehicle. Applications of interest include off-road vehicles and planetary rovers. Other areas of interest are high-velocity operations and constructing better vehicle models for improved planning and control.
