There are two open positions for the following projects. 

1. Aerial Mapping and Situation Awareness 

This project aims to develop aerial robotic systems to monitor a complex urban environments, to create a real time map, and to share it with other autonomous vehicles. Backgrounds in the following topics are desired.

a. SLAM 
b. ROS 
c. Machine learning 
d. Image processing 

This position will be funded by NSF. 

2. Dynamics and Control of Flapping Wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle 

This project aims to uncover the biomechanics of Monarch butterflies exhibiting the longest flight range among insects, and to utilize it to develop bio-inspired control schemes for long-range flapping-wing micro aerial vehicles. Backgrounds in the following topics are desired.

a. Nonlinear dynamics 
b. Nonlinear control theory 
c. Aerodynamics 
d. Geometric mechanics 

For every position, it is expected that the candidates have expertise in structured programming. 

To apply, or to request more information, please contact Prof. Taeyoung Lee at tylee at gwu.edu. The application should include CV, a list of publications, and a list of reference, and it should be submitted as a single PDF file.
