His research interests include Machine-learning approaches for safety of multi-agent systems, Control-theoretic methods for security of CPS, Optimization-based control design, Multi-agent distributed control, Finite-time stability theory for safe distributed control design, Hybrid/Switched-Systems: theory and applications, and Accelerated optimization methods.
Bio: Kwesi Rutledge is a METEOR Postdoctoral Fellow working with Professors Chuchu Fan and Nicholas Roy in MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. His research interests include Control Theory (especially adaptive control), Formal Methods (especially as it is applied to Control Systems), Robotic Manipulation, and Convex Optimization. Outside of research, he is excited by bicycling, entrepreneurship, reading, running, and much more.
Kwesi Rutledge obtained an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2015. After this, he obtained a Master’s Degree from the University of California , San Diego in 2017 while doing some research with Prof. Todd Coleman and then completed a PhD at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor in 2022 under the supervision of Necmiye Ozay.
Bio: Hi! My name is Charles, and I’m a graduate student in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at MIT, and a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. My research interests lie at the intersection of control theory, optimization, and systems theory in service of building safer and better-performing robots. Before attending MIT, I received my B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA. Outside of the lab, I like to bake bread and climb rocks.
