Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis,
quantum chemical calculations,
Matthew Hale received his BSE summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania and received his MS and Ph.D. from Georgia Tech. His work is driven by designing and analyzing multi-agent coordination algorithms that function well under challenging conditions, such as asynchronous information sharing, noisy communications, and user privacy requirements. His work deploys these algorithms on teams of flying and ground robots, providing both validation of the underlying theory and further research directions.
