Bio:  George Pappas is the Joseph Moore Professor and Department Chair in Electrical and Systems Engineering, University of Pennsylvania, as well as the Deputy Dean for Research, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, University of Pennsylvania. Pappas is a leader in the well-known GRASP Lab at UPenn (General Robotics, Automation, Sensing, and Perception). George Pappas's research focuses on control theory and its application to unmanned aerial vehicles, distributed robotics, and biomolecular networks. A key innovation that directly addresses important privacy concerns in TerraSwarm systems is Pappas's system-theoretic formulation of differential privacy.
