My current research interests are in the design, analysis, and implementation of control and optimization algorithms for large-scale cyber-physical infrastructures, with an emphasis on air transportation systems. These include airport congestion control algorithms, air traffic routing and airspace resource allocation methods, machine learning for weather forecasts and flight delay prediction, and methods to mitigate environmental impacts. My research spans theory and practice, including both algorithm development and real-world field tests.

A high-level description of some my research interests can be found here. This is a more recent research statement written in July 2013.
