Michael Hibbard


Graduate Research Assistant

I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of Aerospace Engineering co-advised by Dr. Topcu and Dr. Tanaka. I earned my B.S. in engineering mechanics and astronautics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018 and my M.S. in aerospace engineering from UT in 2020. Briefly, my research focuses on how autonomous agents should optimally behave when subject to information constraints and sensor limitations. I am particularly interested in applying these ideas to outer-space applications.
