My primary research interests lie in the areas of systems and control theory. I am currently involved in collaborative research aiming to develop constraint-aware control algorithms with applications in automotive and power systems. Additionally, I am interested in developing fundamental real-time capable control theory for stochastic uncertain systems as well as constrained control systems. My current projects are listed below.
  • Advanced constraint management and control of turbocharged engines. Sponsor: Ford Motor Company
  • Robust real time control of a distribution grid with uncertain distributed energy resources. Sponsor: US Department of Energy
  • Theory of Quasilinear Control
I am always looking for bright hardworking students at both undergraduate and graduate levels interested in research and scholarship in my areas of interest. If you are interested in working with me, please send me an email with a copy of your CV and a summary of your qualifications.
