Dimitra Panagou Assistant Professor at the Aerospace Engineering Department, University of Michigan

Dimitra Panagou, Ph.D.

I am an Assistant Professor at the Aerospace Engineering Department, University of Michigan.

My research interests lie in the areas of safe and resilient (secure) multi-agent systems with applications in Unmanned Aerial Systems, autonomous multi-vehicle systems (ground, marine, aerial, space) and robotic networks.

My research program emphasizes in the exploration, development and implementation of control and estimation methods to address real world problems via provably correct solutions. I am particularly interested in mission synthesis and multi-agent planning, coordination and control in uncertain environments (e.g., under adversarial attacks).

As thus, my research interests span the areas of nonlinear systems, control and estimation, decentralized/distributed control, switched and hybrid systems, decision making and control under constraints, robotic motion planning, underactuated and nonholonomic systems, and networked robotic/control systems.

I am a recipient of the NASA 2016 Early Career Faculty Award and of the AFOSR 2017 Young Investigator (YIP) Award.
