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 motion planning, coordination and control for complex dynamical 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 theoretic methods in order to address real world constrained control problems via analytic, provably correct solutions.

As thus, my research interests span the areas of nonlinear systems and control, decentralized/distributed control, switched and hybrid systems, constrained decision making and control, 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.
