Developing the foundations of Safe, and Agile A.I. and Autonomous Systems
Dr. Madhur Behl is an Assistant Professor in the departments of Computer Science, and Engineering Systems and Environment, and a member of the Cyber-Physical Systems Link Lab at the University of Virginia.
He received his Ph.D. (2015) and M.S. (2012), in Electrical and Systems Engineering, both from the University of Pennsylvania; and his bachelor's degree (2009) in ECE from PEC University of Technology in India.
He is the co-founder, organizer, and the race director of the F1/10 International Autonomous Racing Competitions. He is an associate editor for the SAE Journal on Connected and Autonomous Vehciles. He also serves on the on the Academic Advisory Council of the Partners for Automated Vehicle Education (PAVE) campaign, to help promote public understanding about autonomous vehicles and their potential benefits. Dr. Behl is also the recipient of the NSF CAREER Award (2021).
I am looking for PhD students and postdocs with a strong background and publication record in robotics, deep learning, autonomous systems, and cyber-physical systems.
If you are a student at UVA and are interested in autonomous racing research, please consider joining the Cavalier Autonomous Racing Club autonomousracing.dev/
I conduct research at the confluence of Machine Learning, Predictive Control, and Artificial Intelligence with applications in Cyber-Physical Systems, Autonomous Systems, Robotics, and Smart Cities.
Examples include: fully autonomous racing at the limits of control (Agile Autonomy), safety of autonomous vehicles (Safe Autonomy), data predictive control for flooding in coastal cities, and AI for building energy optimization.
