I am fascinated with trusted autonomy: a field that looks at designing safe and trustworthy interaction spaces between humans and machines. My particular interest is focusing on human-swarm interaction, designing artificial and computational intelligence algorithms for swarm systems made of UAVs, UGVs, and software swarm, and for managing the interaction space between the human and the swarm. My research is transdisciplinary in nature. It brings threads from artificial intelligence, cognitive science, operations research, and robotics to answer the following questions:
