Hybrid systems model the interaction of continuous dynamics, which arise from the laws of physics, and of discrete dynamics, which arise from the automation's discrete mode-logic. As computing power continues to grow and embedded automation becomes common-place, the range of applications for hybrid systems will only increase. However, there is a clear need for advances in tools and methods to analyze and control the performance of hybrid systems, especially when they require human interaction.

I am originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I attended Albuquerque Academy. As an undergraduate I was a member of the Princeton Ski Team. I completed my PhD under the supervision of Professor Claire Tomlin, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University. I held a non-research postdoc at the NSF-funded National Ecological Observational Network (NEON) Project Office, then resumed research as a postdoc at Sandia National Laboratories. I particularly enjoy spending time outdoors, skiing, backpacking, and kayaking.
