Professor Morse's research deals with problems involving the control of dynamical systems of all types. He is especially interested in control using logic-based switching, in hybrid systems, in vision-based control, and in the development of new algorithms for controlling very imprecisely modeled processes. Currently his research is focused on a variety of problems in the area of network science including sensor network localization, multi-agent consensus and rendezvous, and the distributed control of formations of mobile autonomous agents.
