Welcome to the Poonawala Lab website. Our lab aims to develop automated algorithms that robots use to design provably safe controllers for unseen environments using data, without human intervention. Current algorithms that provide all three features (provably safe, data-driven, human-oversight-free) in their controllers are highly application specific. We believe that expertise in machine learning, dynamics, control theory, and artificial intelligence is critical to developing more general algorithms.

Our current work focuses on robot navigation and manipulation. More information can be found on our research page.
