    Research Statement

    I have significant expertise in the development of unmanned vehicles specifically in the maritime domain. My current research area includes development of formation control systems for land, aerial and marine vehicles. Cooperative control of a dual arm system such as a humanoid is also an active area of research. Additionally, I am actively involved in developing navigation systems for uninhabited vehicles which includes obstacles detection and avoidance and simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) systems.
