About me

Hi there! I am Yi-Hsuan Chen (陳誼軒), a PhD student in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park, started in 2022 Fall. I am a member of the Motion and Teaming (Mo-T) Laboratory under Dr. Michael Otte. My research focuses on integrating of control theory and motion planning algorithms, specifically aimed at enhancing safe multi-agent path planning. My research interests span Dynamics and Control, Motion Planning, Flight Mechanics, and Optimization, with applications in autonomous systems.

Prior to my PhD, I received a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia. Working with Dr. Eric Feron in the Robotics, Intelligent Systems, and Control (RISC) Laboratory, I developed a flight control algorithm for parabolic flight to achieve microgravity. I also completed a Bachelor’s in Aeronautics and Astronautics from National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, where I worked with Dr. Chao-Chung Peng on dynamics modeling and control for a quadrotor.

Outside of research, I enjoy running, hiking, traveling, and playing with my dogs :)
