Debdipta Goswami joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, the Ohio State University, in 2022 as an assistant professor. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Derek A. Paley. Between 2020 and 2022, he has worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in Princeton University where he worked with Prof. Clancy Rowley. His research interests lie at the intersection of control systems and machine learning with a focus on motion planning and agile control of aerial robots.

He has worked on data-driven discovery and control of dynamical systems using operator-theoretic methods and reservoir computers. His current research focuses on the structured learning of control systems from data with guaranteed performance and simultaneous learning and control of dynamical systems. He also works on model predictive control and motion planning for unmanned aerial vehicles.
