Workshops, Tutorials, and Seminars

Robust Autonomy: Safe Robot Learning and Control in Uncertain Real-World Environments – Co-organizer – Workshop, RSS 2019

The workshop brought together researchers from industry and academia to discuss the core challenges, promising solution strategies, fundamental limitations, and regulatory realities involved in deploying safety-critical systems in real-world environments.

Hamilton-Jacobi Reachability: A Brief Overview and Recent Advances – Co-organizer – Tutorial, CDC 2017

The tutorial covered the theoretical foundations as well as computational tools for Hamilton-Jacobi (HJ) reachability analysis. The tutorial facilitated the application of HJ reachability to a variety of research domains such as model validation, human-robot interaction, and bio-engineering; it also started a platform for collaboration between these different fields.

We also organized a similar workshop on reachability in UC Berkeley. Here are my slides on Introduction to Reachability from that workshop.

DREAM/CPAR Seminar - Co-organizer - Fall 2017–Spring 2019

This seminar series has been well established over the past few years, and is a joint effort between the Design of Robotics and Embedded systems, Analysis, and Modeling Seminar and the CITRIS People and Robots Initiative.
