Distributed Systems Dynamics and Control
An overview of spatially distributed systems theory in both discrete (graph-based) and continuum space. A diverse set of dynamic phenomena and control problems in areas such as vehicular formations, distributed power generation as well as shear flow turbulence and control can be treated in a unified manner.
Research DescriptionMy research interests are in the general area of Control and Dynamical Systems, as well as the applications of systems and feedback techniques in several physical and engineering systems. Aside from basic research on the theory of Robust and Optimal Control, I also work in the areas of networked and multi-agent systems, distributed control and dynamical systems, shear flow transition and turbulence, and the use of feedback in thermoacoustic energy conversion devices.
