Ph.D. Students

In general, we look for strong Ph.D. students to join our lab to work on problems related to task assignment and resource allocation, and path planning and control of ground and aerial vehicles. While we are in the department of computer science, robotics is an interdisciplinary field, and we need electrical and mechanical engineers, too. If interested, please apply to the Department of Computer Science through the Viterbi School of Engineering.

Please note that Dr. Ayanian cannot reply to all of the emails received from students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in our lab.

Master's Students

There are currently no open positions for masters students in our lab. If you are interested in working with us in the future, we encourage you to take our course, CSCI 599, Coordinated Mobile Robotics. It is open to students in all departments.


Motivated undergraduates are always welcome in our lab. Email Dr. Ayanian directly to set up a meeting so potential projects can be discussed. Have a resume ready.
