I obtained my BASc from the University of Toronto in 2008, and my PhD from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2013. From 2013-2016, I was with Ford Research and Advanced Engineering as a research engineer, where I investigated advanced control of automotive systems. Since 2016, I have been an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Vermont. I am currently the founding chair of the IEEE GMS Control Systems Society Chapter.
My primary research interests lie in the areas of systems and control theory, more specifically predictive control, nonlinear control, and constrained control. My application areas are automotive systems, power systems, and aerospace systems. I am always looking for bright hardworking students at both undergraduate and graduate levels interested in research and scholarship in my areas of interest.
