Research

Research interests are in dynamic systems and control, tracking control and disturbance rejection, nonlinear and time-varying control, mechatronics, fluid power, and applications to automotive propulsion systems. Recent work includes novel time-varying control methodologies for rotational-angle based systems, developing key enabling technologies for clean, efficient and multi-fuel capable automotive powertrain, such as camless engine, free piston engine, precise pressure regulation for common-rail systems, modeling and control of efficient transmission systems, and various advanced hybrid concepts.
