Safe and Resilient Autonomous Driving in Smart Cities
Golnaz Habibi is currently a research scientist at the department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT. She will join the department of computer science at the University of Oklahoma as an assistant professor in 2022. Previously, she was a robotics engineer at Autel robotics leading the team of motion planning of autonomous drones. Golnaz received her Bsc in electrical and control engineering from K.N.Toosi University of Technology, Iran, her Msc in control engineering from Tarbiat Modares University, Iran, and her PhD in computer science from Rice University. Golnaz’s work lies at the intersection of robotics, control, machine learning, and multi-agent systems. Her algorithmic solutions have been implemented on real robotics systems and they have been applied to real-world problems such as autonomous driving, multi-agent task allocation, and collective transport. Her current research focuses on visual autonomous navigation, reliable communication and improving the safety and reliability of autonomous agents.
