Expertise Description

First in the arena of industrial research and then as a university professor, I have spent more than 35 years pursuing the challenges of alternative forms of energy for transportation and electrical power. Some recent examples of my research are: the development of direct electromagnetic conversion of light energy into DC electrical power, the production and use of hydrogen as an alternative energy carrier, and the design of an electronic DC/DC converter for implementation in a vehicle application. Throughout my career I have consistently applied my skills to solving the practical problems caused by the contemporary sources of energy used for transportation and electric power generation. My combination of industrial research experience and academic background has given me a sharp analytical approach tempered with an understanding of the economic constraints of the existing infrastructure.

Expert 382459 - CA(S)

Expertise Description

I have more than 15 years experience in the field of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with a focus on Control systems and dynamics. My applied research in control theory includes nonlinear control, adaptive designs, distributed parameter systems, automotive / aerospace systems, energy storage, biotechnology, stochastic nonlinear systems, partial differential equation (PDE) control, delay systems, model-free optimization / extremum seeking, and other industrial collaborations. I have experience with control problems with aerodynamic drag reduction, fusion reactors, magnetohydrodynamic instabilities in plasmas, internal combustion engines, and source seeking for autonomous vehicles in GPS-denied environments. I also have experience with blade-vortex interaction on helicopter rotors, and control of satellites, underwater vehicles, and biological / chemical reactors. I have prior expert witness experience.
