I will be joining the faculty in the department of Civil, Environmental, and Geo- Engineering at the University of Minnesota in 2019. My primary research interests are autonomous vehicles and how they can be used for traffic control and estimation.


I am currently seeking graduate students interested in vehicle automation, urban sensing, and smart cities to join my lab in the fall of 2019. If you are interested, please contact me directly (rstern@umn.edu).
