Professor Batta was interviewed about his recent articles titled "Controlling a Fleet of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Collect Uncertain Information in a Threat Environment" and his work in urban OR and search problems.

When asked about the most important take-away of the paper, Batta said:

"Search theory to me consists of lots of simple, elegant, relevant, and yet unsolved problems. Most of these problems are found in a military setting but increasingly they also occur in humanitarian settings such as search and rescue operations for survivors. I hope that more operations researchers work on these simply stated problems."
