I am an assistant professor in Iowa State University Aerospace Engineering Department, with courtesy appointments in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and Computer Science Department. I am also an affiliated faculty member with the FAA Center of Excellence for General Aviation (PEGASAS), and the Human Computer Interaction graduate program at Virtual Reality Applications Center (VRAC) at ISU. I am leading the Intelligent Aerospace Systems Lab (IASL). You can download my CV here. Please learn more about our lab at: YouTube GitHub Instagram

Research Interests

With methods from Control, Optimization, Statistical Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence, I develop autonomous and human-in-the-loop decision making tools for air transportation and aviation systems, which include:

  • Air Traffic Control/Management (ATC/M)

  • Airline Operations

  • UAS Traffic Management (UTM)

  • eVTOL Urban Air Mobility (UAM)

News

  • Aug. 2018, our graduate student Priyank won the Best Paper Award in 2018 IEEE/CSAA GNCC (Xiamen, China).

  • July 2018, our graduate student Marc won the Best Paper Award in ICRAT18 (Barcelona, Spain) Unmanned Aerial Systems track.

  • May 2018, our group received the NVIDIA GPU academic grant for our AI research in aviation systems.

  • May 2018, our graduate students received internship opportunities from NASA Ames Research Center, MIT Lincoln Lab, American Airlines, TuSimple, and the FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center.

  • Feb. 2018, I started serving as an associate editor for AIAA Journal of Aerospace Information Systems.

  • July 2017, our group is funded by National Science Foundation to develop an intelligent low-altitude air traffic management system prototype to accommodate future on-demand air traffic such as on demand air mobility and autonomous cargo delivery.

  • June 2017, our group is funded by Airbus A^3 to study research topics on Urban Air Mobility.
