Tomographic sensing of 3D environments
Mathematical simulation of Acoustic Tomography of 3D temperature distributions. Left Picture: Ultrasonic transceivers (red dots) make line integral measurements (blue lines) of a 3D temperature distribution (iso-surfaces shown). Right Picture: Tomographic reconstruction of temperature distribution shows that bimodal nature of distribution is clearly visible.
Professor Bamieh's 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, his group carries out several research activities including the theory of quantum control, distributed control and dynamical systems, shear flow transition and turbulence, and the use of feedback in thermoacoustic energy conversion devices.
Bamieh joined the College of Engineering faculty in 1998, prior to which he was with the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Professor Bamieh is a Fellow of the IEEE, an IEEE Control Systems Society Distinguished Lecturer, a past receipient of the IEEE Control Systems Society G. S. Axelby Outstanding Paper Award, the AACC Hugo Schuck best paper award and a National Science Foundation CAREER award.
