I moved to Caltech. Please, go to mjkhojas for the new version of this website.
I am a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech, working with Prof. Richard Murray. My research is supported by the Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies (CAST) at Caltech.
I did my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Control) at UC San Diego. My advisor was Prof. Massimo Franceschetti. During my Ph.D. I also collaborated closely with Prof. Jorge Cortés, Prof. Tara Javidi, and Prof. Nikolay Atanasov. Before joining UCSD, I got two bachelor's degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics at Sharif University of Technology.
My research goal is to develop scientific principles for cyber-physical systems and cloud robotics aimed at increasing the efficiency, safety, and security of these systems. I work on machine learning for dynamics and control. The fields relevant to my research are control theory, machine learning, robotics, and information theory.
October 2019: I defended my Ph.D. dissertation.
August 2019: I am attending the Robustness in Learning and Statistics summer school.
April 2019: Invited Talk, Wireless Systems Lab, Stanford University.
March 2019: Invited Talk, System Seminar, California Institute of Technology.
February 2019: I am giving a graduation day talk in Information Theory and Applications Workshop (ITA 2019).
December 2018: I will present two papers in 57th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control.
November 2018: I successfully passed Ph.D. Qualifying Exam.
August 2018: I received Student Travel Award for 57th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control.
