Current Research


Asst. Professor Bhaskar Ramasubramanian

My research focus has been in the fields of software-defined secure verification and feedback-driven machine learning to reason about the behavior of autonomous cyber systems. I adopt a multidisciplinary approach that establishes an interplay between fundamental techniques from machine learning, optimization and control, game theory, and formal methods.

Assistant Professor Bhaskar Ramasubramanian's summer research students working to understand and develop algorithms to improve behaviors of autonomous vehicles when they share their environments with human drivers. The students have been reading recent research in this domain, and working with the Nocturne driving simulator. They have also been spending part of their time trying to assemble a 1/10-scale RC car and with the goal of deploying reinforcement learning algorithms.
