Research Projects

  • Distributed system requires sub-systems to coordinate with each other to achieve a joint goal. However, in reality this coordination sometimes fails. The goal of my research is to make sure that if any coordination failures arise, we will be able to detect the failures and diagnose the reasons for them. My work combines Model-Based Diagnosis (MBD) principles and Distributed Constraints Satisfaction (DisCSP) algorithms in Multi-Robot Systems.
  • 2. A need for collaboration emerged in the business environment where activity collaboration system can increase the efficiency of the users and make it easier to manage activity and information such as meetings, contact information and documents. In my research I develop novel votingalgorithms for synchronization and collaboration over meetings.
