Postdoctoral researcher Vijay Gupta has accepted an assistant professor position in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. The position begins in January 2008.

As a postdoc, Vijay has been conducting research with Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR) and Assistant Professor Nuno Martins (ECE/ISR) on collaborative control of multi-agent systems and the interplay between communications and control in such systems. He will continue his close collaboration with Professors Baras and Martins and their research students through the rest of 2007.

Gupta completed his PhD in June 2006, at the California Institute of Technology, where his advisors were Professors Richard Murray and Babak Hassibi. He joined UMD as a postdoc in September of 2006. His research interests lie in the broad area of networked systems, distributed estimation, control over communication channels and systematic component-based design of multi-agent systems.

"This is a very well deserved appointment," said Dr. Baras. "Vijay is working in the very challenging area of networked systems, distributed estimation, control over communication channels and systematic design of multi-agent systems. The most challenging aspect of this whole area is the lack of analytic methods to synthesize such systems. This is where Vijay has made already important contributions by studying aspects of the information pattern of the agents, including questions like what information to transmit, when to transmit it, with whom to exchange information. We have already several joint publications, and we look forward to continue our collaboration with him when he joins Notre Dame."
