Welcome to my homepage! My lab works on exciting multi-disciplinary problems at the intersection of the two areas of communications and robotics/control. Current research thrusts include:

RF Sensing, X-ray vision with WiFi, Robots imaging through walls with WiFi, 3D imaging with copters [sample video][project page][related papers][sample data]

Estimating occupancy attributes (e.g., head counting, through wall counting, crowd speed estimation) with WiFi [sample video][project page][related papers]

Communication-aware robotics, Co-optimization of navigation & communication, Mobility to enable connectivity, Multi-agent systems [project page][related papers][sample data]

Human-robot collaboration, Human visual performance prediction, When to query human, Human vision [project page][related papers][data]
