Short Bio

Prof. Majumdar's research focuses on the control of highly agile robotic systems such as unmanned aerial vehicles with formal guarantees on their safety and performance. Majumdar will be starting as an Assistant Professor in 2017. He is currently a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University in the Autonomous Systems Lab. He completed his Ph.D. in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at MIT. Majumdar received his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a member of the GRASP lab. Majumdar's research has been recognized with the Best Conference Paper Award at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2013, and the Siebel Foundation Scholarship.
