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 received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2016, and a B.S.E. in Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011. Subsequently, he was a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University from 2016 to 2017 at the Autonomous Systems Lab in the Aeronautics and Astronautics department. His 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.
