Research Interests

I am broadly interested in the modeling, analysis and design of uncertain multi-agent systems. I have primarily worked in the following areas:

  • mathematical neuroscience with emphasis on decision-making and animal locomotion

  • design of mixed human-automata teams

  • search and surveillance using robotic and mobile-sensor networks

  • distributed optimization in multi-agent systems

Recent Updates
  • Nov 2015: Our work on Higher moments of decision times for drift-diffusion model conditionally accepted in Journal of Mathematical Psychology

  • First passage time computations for time varying drift diffusion processes. code

Vaibhav Srivastava was born in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India. He received the B.Tech. degree in mechanical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India, in 2007; the M.S. degree in mechanical engineering and the M.A. degree in statistics from the University of California at Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA, in 2011 and 2012, respectively; and the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 2012.

Dr Srivastava is currently a Lecturer and Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. He received the best paper award (as coauthor) at the 2014 European Control Conference. His research interests include modeling, analysis, and design of human cognition; shared autonomous systems; socio-cognitive networks; computational networks; and robotic search and surveillance missions.
