Expertise DescriptionI 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.
Areas of Expertise
My consulting services include editorial activities for book series regarding communications and control engineering, systems and control letters, and adaptive control papers; as well as teaching experience in topics of nonlinear systems, nonlinear control, adaptive control, control of distributed parameter systems, robust and multivariable control, linear control, and signals and systems.
