Multi-agent robotic systems, networked robots, robot swarms, and distributed control
M. Ani Hsieh is an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Department and the Director of the Robotics Program at Drexel University. She received a BS in Engineering and BA in Economics from Swarthmore College in 1999 and her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 2007.
Her current work in the Scalable Autonomous System Laboratory at Drexel University focuses on bridging the gap between statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics and control, and distributed multi-agent robotic systems. She was a 2011 ONR Summer Faculty Fellow and received the 2012 Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Award.
