Nikhil Chopra promoted to associate professor with tenure

Nikhil Chopra (ME) has been promoted to the rank of associate professor with tenure. Chopra is an affiliated faculty member of ISR.

Chopra received his Ph.D. degree in Systems and Entrepreneurial Engineering in 2006 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Coordinated Science Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 2006-2007. He has been on the University of Maryland faculty since 2007.

His research interests are in developing a fundamental understanding of synchronization and control of networked dynamical systems interacting over unreliable communication networks. This work is important in practical applications such as semi-autonomous telerobotic networks, robot networks and unmanned air vehicles.
